Il Seggio DOC Bolgheri Rosso

From: £29.85

Producer
Poggio al Tesoro is a 70 hectare property in Bolgheri acquired in 2002 by the Allegrini family. The first vineyard they bought, Le Sondraie, is next door to Ornellaia and was previously rented by them. It is 50 hectares in size and is planted with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Vermentino.
Vineyards
‘Seggio’ is the name of the creek that runs through Bolgheri – its course from above is represented on the label. This wine is produced from different plots of vineyards in the Poggio al Tesoro estate. The Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in the Via Bolgherese vineyards, at 56 metres above sea level. Here soils are deep, with coarse-grained red sand, that is gravelly and well-drained with a layer of clay four feet below the surface. The other varieties are grown in the Le Sondraie vineyard 35 metres above sea level where the soils are clayey with well-drained sandy silt and high concentrations of magnesium and iron.
Vinification
Following destemming and gentle pressing to partially rupture the berries, fermentation took place over 12 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 28-30°C. The wine was then aged for 15 months in 225 litre French oak barrique from Allier (30% new, 70% second fill) during which time malolactic fermentation occurred naturally.
