Podernuovo Therra 2012
Wine AdvocateLike the other wines from Podernuovo a Palazzone, the 2012 Therra shows a very focused and precise personality. This is a lovely and well balanced red blend based on Sangiovese with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Montepulciano and Merlot. The bouquet is seamless and smooth. The mouthfeel is never too heavy despite the wine's obvious structure and power. This red has the grit and determination to pair with hearty Tuscan meat dishes. It should age steadily over the next ten years or more.
Wine EnthusiastMade of 48% Sangiovese, 35% Montepulciano, 10% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, this has black-skinned fruit and baking spice aromas. The firm palate delivers black cherry, black currant and tobacco notes in a frame of fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2020.
