The three red wines of Podernuovo a Palazzone in Tuscany (Italy) follow this philosophy and debut with their 2009 vintage as a result of a rich yet complex year. Mild temperatures in the winter, and rainy spring seasons brought about an early awakening of the vines with an accelerated growth. The hot summer with major temperature fluctuations and the play of rain and sunshine in September ensure a gradual ripening, enhancing the aromatic complexity of the grapes.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Therra is a bend of the five red grapes grown at Podernuovo a Palazzone: Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Montepulciano and Merlot. This interesting blend offers huge fruit character with dark cherry, pressed blackberry, spice, tobacco and leather. It's a truly lovely wine that makes for a perfect option for grilled steak or roasted leg of lamb. You get the tannic structure from the two Cabernet varieties and the fruity softness from both the Montepulciano and the Merlot. The Sangiovese contributes to the wine's bright acidic vein.

Wine EnthusiastMontepulciano, Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes team up to produce this firmly structured but accessible red. The palate delivers ripe black cherry, red currants and tobacco lightly accented with oak-driven spice. It's balanced with firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2016.
