Fattoria Zerbina – 30/03/2012

AS Albana di Romagna DOCG 2010
Made from the indigenous Albana grape. Had crisp fresh citrus notes with some floral aromas, was very clean and bright with good fruit and acid, and was an uncomplicated and unadulterated white wine.

Pietramora Sangiovese Riserva 2008
Darker fruit notes combined with earth and floral elements, was more intense and firm on the tannins, and had some fruit sweetness in its youth.

Pietramora Sangiovese Riserva 2007
Closed but showed riper fuller yet softer characters than the 2008.

Pietramora Sangiovese Riserva 2006
The most intense and integrated, with the prominent oak and earth characters of youth softer and more complex.

Marzieno 2007
A blend of 75% sangiovese, and 25% cabernet, merlot and syrah, combined blackcurrant and crushed flowers & herbs, but in its youth is overwhelmed by oak and very dense grippy tannins.

Scacco Matto Albana 2007
Had floral, vegetal celery, eucalyptus, dried herbs, potato and even a subtle chlorine element.
