2016 Carignano del Sulcis, Grotta Rossa, Santadi*
Sardinia / Italy
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Ideally with spicy meat and fish dishes, matured cheeses and game.
Mature, gamey nose, almost Pinot in style but the palate is fuller and serious. Delicate violet notes on the nose followed by attractive, violet fruit. Delicately made. Toffee smells on the nose and a pleasant palate with slightly ageing fruit and interesting flavour of mushroom on the finish. Complex, deep and delicious blend of tarry blackcurrant fruit with underlying richness of dried fig.
