Sette Ponti Poggio Al Lupo 2006

Sette Ponti Poggio Al Lupo 750ml 2006     
Sku: 12067

Carlo Ferrini created this Maremma wine from one of Tuscany’s great estates, which spans 115 acres (35 planted to vines) purchased by Antonio Moretti in 1999. The property is typical of Tuscany’s coastal areas, with pockets of soil rich in clay and others rich in gravel and fine stones. The principal Poggio al Lupo vineyard is a southerly hillside vineyard rising 330 feet above sea level and planted with 5.5 acres of both Alicante and Petit Verdot; the balance is Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes are hand harvested and then fermented with prolonged maceration on the skins, followed by malolactic fermentation and maturation in French Allier barriques and in bottle before release.

Tasting notes
The wine has a deep, opaque purple color suggestingintensity and extraction. Heady aromas and flavors deliver jammy black fruit with notes of cedar. The body is full, with silky tannins and a long, penetrating finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 89 points (Aug 2009)
The 2006 Poggio Al Lupo is 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Alicante and 7% Petit Verdot from vineyards in Maremma aged in 100% new oak. It is a forward, juicy offering imbued with ripe red fruit, licorice, sweet toasted oak, smoke and minerals. Medium in body, the wine reveals good length and balance in an enticing style. This will be a very interesting wine to follow over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2018.”

Food pairing
Exceptional with full-flavored meats and hard cheeses.
