A fragrant and intensely fruity red wine, where the aromas of blackberries, plums and cherries are interwoven with more incisive peppery notes. The result of a winning blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Mediterra succeeds in the difficult task of expressing the rich complexity of Bolgheri's terroir with an easy- drinking, exceedingly enjoyable style.
An ideal pairing with various meat dishes, cold cuts and medium-matured cheeses, including Italian pecorino. It should be enjoyed slightly chilled, with seafood dishes such as mullet in tomato sauce, poached fish and Livorno-style salt cod. 40% Syrah, 30% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2017 Mediterra is plump, juicy and racy - all qualities that make it a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Sweet tobacco, leather, cedar, mint and plum are pushed forward in this bold, fruity Syrah/Merlot-based Maremma red. The 2017 is wonderfully rich and immensely enjoyable. Best of all, it is a fabulous value.
