Podernuovo a Palazzone - Argirio 2015
PoderNuovo - Argirio 2015 (90 TSW)
Decanted in Zalto glas this 100 % young Tuscan Cabernet Franc.
My tasting notes:
In the glass an intense ruby red color with purple rim.
On the medium+ nose aromas of ripe plums, blackberries and dark cherries with hints of bell pepper, herbs, young leather and liquorice.
On the palate dry, medium+ bodied and medium acidity with medium+ ripe tannins. Nicely balanced with flavours that are a recall of the nose with balsamico and black tea. Nice long finish. I have one bottle left to retaste over some years.
To pair with Beef, Lamb, Veal, Poultry, Cheese or Cured Meat.
The PoderNuovo estate measures 55 hectares, 26 of which are vineyards , positioned at an altitude that ranges roughly from 200 to 400 meters. The cold winters and hot summers force the vines to a great stress and thus to produce the best grapes.
The terroir is contained between MonteCetona and other nearby hills and is not over affected by the presence of large lakes or water reservoirs.Taking the grapes in their best possible conditions to the winery is Giovanni Bulgari’s main objective. This is why Podernuovo a Palazzone employs more people in the vineyard than it is common practice, to keep the plants healthy and clean.
The “jewel” of the estate is without doubt the cellar that hosts all the production premises.Designed to perfectly blend-in with the landscape, it is a prime example of highly functionalbut entirely non invasive architecture.
