Tenuta Fanti Poggio Torto Rosso 2020

Tuscany, ItalyThe Tenuta Fanti estate has belonged to the Fanti family since the beginning of the eighteenth century. It extends across 300 hectares in Toscana, 52ha of which are specialized certified sustainable vineyards. The name Poggio Torto (leaning hill) comes from the irregular shape of the hill Poggio d’Arna, that is in front of the winery. This blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah comes from young vines rooted in schist and clay. It was fermented in stainless before 4 months in oak barrels, 50% in barriques of 3hl, and 50% in big oak barrels of 50 hl. Fragrant black raspberries, cherries flood the palate, structured with long, fine, sticky tannins, and brightened with an easy stony acidity. This fresh, fuller red is a smart use of international grapes in Toscana.Tasted: 30 August 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
