Ivole, Bianco Toscana IGT, Poggio del Moro 2019

£15.49 GBP

Poggio del Moro are a new producer for us and we tried their wines recently and loved them and their wine making ethos. Their winery and vineyards are close to the town of Montepulciano, near to the picturesque town Sienna in Tuscany, Italy. This immaculate wine estate makes small quantities of traditional Tuscan wines, made with a modern take, and farmed biodynamically.

This white wine is made from a blend of local varieties, Trebbiano, Grechetto and Malvasia. The fruit is picked early in the morning, harvest is finished before 10am and the fruit is placed in a cooling room to rest for one day. This helps to preserve the fresh acidity and wonderful floral aromas. The wine is then aged for three months on its lees, in stainless steel barrels. It is then bottled on a full moon, following biodynamic principles. 

The flavour of the wine is completely in sync with the great outdoors. It smells of plums, melons and pears, similar to a hidden Italian garden full of fruit trees. There are floral qualities on the palate, with an underling honeyed texture, held together with notes of lemon and orange zest.

Nature in a glass.
