Not an easy wine to categorise; merlot from Piemonte, Veneto and Toscana in equal measures and aged in oak for twelve months or so (I will dig out my notes and update the technical information)
Suffice to say, this is no ordinary merlot and so far I have had guesses ranging from primitivo to Brunello. Some of you may remember La Quadratura del Cerchio a fantastic experiment from Cipresso which combined sangiovese from Montalcino with primitivo from Manduria and Treper Uno has an element of that insanity but it is a lot easier proposition at this relatively young age, a joyous wine!
Blueberry and sloe on the nose, the slightest touch of strawberry jam and mint. Blueberry and cassis fruit, cinnamon, balsamic and roasted pepper nuance. An excellently balanced medium bodied red which is a pleasure to drink now and I suspect it will continue to improve over the next 5 years or so.
