Tasting Notes

There is a combination of fresh and stewed red fruit with an herbal and peppered undertone. You can also notice a hint of oak, but only in a slight tobacco leaf and it finishes with a molasses savouriness.

In the sommelier world, we would describe this nose as “lifted”. Whether it is the alcohol or the slightly elevated volatile acidity, which is natural for appassimento wines, there is a power to this wine that isn’t just fruit concentration. There is a combination of fresh and stewed red fruit with an herbal and peppered undertone. You can also notice a hint of oak, but only in a slight tobacco leaf and it finishes with a molasses savouriness. The palate is quite dry, and the tannins grab hold, and the fresh red berry fruit is also layered with umami and a touch of salinity I assume from the Petit Verdot. This is a monster wine that needs decanting and leaving the decanter somewhere cool to make sure you don’t go over 18ଂC.
