Infinity Toscana IGT

Tuscany :: Italy

http://blog.poggioverrano.it/

Estate::

Wisely integrated in the shining and rural surrounding landscape of Maremma Toscana, the vineyards are 27 ha in size with density of 6700 vines per ha grown with low spurred cordon. Rocky soil of calcareous and clayey nature, height between 170 and 300 m. on sea level, south-southwest exposure and 15 km distance from the Mediterranean sea represent ideal conditions for indigenous varietals such as Sangiovese and Alicante together with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot perfectly integrated along the Tuscan coast since many decades. The winery is the other important quality component. Built following the gravity flow principle, it is fully underground to respect the surroundings and covered by vines. In its building modality and shape – as shown by the long passage crossing the cellar all the way from the entrance – it reminds essentiality and harmony typical of Etruscan style.

Grape varieties::

35% Merlot
25% Cabernet Sauvignon
20% Sangiovese
20% Alicante

ageing::

Aging in French oak barriques (2 years) to add complexity and in small stainless steel vats (3 years) to keep freshness; then in bottle.

taste::

a rich, full bodied, complex blend that is supple and long on the palate, with intense fruitiness (berry jam, plum, cherry, black licorice) and layers of oak complexity (toast, cedar); long finish

Closure::

Natural cork

Ratings::

Wine Advocate / Robert Parker 92 drink date 2017-2026
The 2009 INFINITY is a dark and savory wine that shows some tertiary definition that reveals its age. The wine is undergoing a successful evolution with dark fruit tones, honey, tar, smoke, toasted espresso bean and licorice.
