Podernuovo Sotirio Toscana 2012 ~ IGP Toscana, Italy
Coup de coeur ~ Négocient
Sotirio is made from grapes grown in the territory of Siena. It has a ruby red colour, aromas of cherry, violet, leather, pomegranate and dried mint. It's fresh, minerally, with velvet tannins and a finish of herbs.
The Podernuovo estate was purchased in 2004 by Paolo and Giovanni Bulgari. The vineyard had been abandoned many years before, and the challenge was to bring it to new life, and have it produce elegant and harmonious wines. Wines that would capture the essence, the beauty and harmony of this specific place, respecting its nature and its history. Podernuovo a Palazzone is a simple project, realized with commitment, dedication and attention to the nature’s needs. A project that want to reveal its passion for all things good, beautiful and well done, for which Italy has long been known for.
