Fascinating nose of salty oily apricot kernels, was fresh yet bold and textural on the palate, rich and contemplative with creamy nutty complexity.
Bolgheri Rosso 2010
Made from wines that don’t qualify for the top wines, spending less time in oak and barrel. Delicate yet tight and fresh, expressing dark fruit focus and restraint, and is not at all jammy or hot.
A blend of 65% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot and 15% sangiovese, a unique putty earthiness with the black fruits, with a supple velvety tannin texture and exquisite structure and potential.
L’Alberello Bolgheri Superiore 2009
Comes from younger vines, and includes no sangiovese, made up of 70% cabernet sauvignon, 25% cabernet franc and 5% petiti verdot. Showed a softer yet fuller wine compared to the Grattamacco, more fruit sweetness and juiciness, with the same structure and finesse.
