Poggio al Lupo is deep, opaque purple in color suggesting its considerable intensity and extraction. The heady aromas deliver jammy black berry fruit and cassis impressions wiht notes of balsam wood and cedar which are confirmed on a palate of great silky voluptuousness. The finish is long, penetrating and seductive.
When should I expect the 2 missing bottles of item # 31780-L-1-1A 2010 Don Rodolfo Cabernet Sauvignon Vina Cornejo Costas Cafayate Vallery?
Please review and advice.
Initial order was placed on 11/4/11 Thanks
The wine has a deep, opaque purple color suggesting intensity and extraction. Heady aromas and flavors deliver jammy black fruit with notes of cedar. The body is full, with silky tannins and a long, penetrating finish.
Wine Maker Notes
The property’s geology is a patchwork typical of Tuscan coastal areas, with pockets of soils rich in clay and others rich in gravel and fine stones set in various protected microclimates. The principal Poggio al Lupo vineyard is a southerly-exposed hillside vineyard parcel rising 330 above sea level planted to 5.5 acres each Alicante and Petit Verdot and the balance in Cabernet Sauvignon. Harvest is carried out by hand, and after initiation of fermentation, the wine remains in contact with the skins for 25 days, with manual punch down of the cap, followed by malolactic fermentation and 20 months’ aging in all new French oak barriques. Six months in bottle precede release of the finished wine, which is composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance equally in Alicante and Petit Verdot.
Exceptional with full-flavored meats and hard cheeses.
The estate of Sette Ponti lies in the heart of the Chianti zone, fifteen miles northwest of the city of Arezzo just past the village of San Giustino Valdarno. The Via del Monte, known locally as the Via dei Sette Ponti, leads into a beautiful hidden valley and to the estate. The name Sette Ponti, or "seven bridges," refers to the seven bridges crossing the Arno River on the road from Arezzo to Florence. The first, the Ponte Buriano, is nearby. Erected in the mid 13th century, it took nearly forty years to build, and is perceptible in the right far background of Leonardo DaVinci's Mona Lisa.
