The Nerdy Bits...

‘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. 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.
