Podernuovo Therra 2010
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Therra, on the other hand, immediately spells out a bouquet that is both focused and elegant. These two vintages represent two sides of the same coin. The blend components are the same as are the percentages of each variety used. But the bouquet veers in a completely new direction: Instead of ripe fruit you get a dollop of exotic spice and savory cured meat. The mouthfeel is also very different compared to 2009. This wine presents a precise acidity component backed by firmly polished tannins. The 2010 vintage is built for longer cellar aging. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025.
Wine SpectatorBright and modern in style, revealing black cherry, blackberry and oak spice flavors on a smooth texture. Well-balanced and long, gaining tannic character from the oak layer. Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2023. 2,400 cases imported.
