Montevetrano Colli di Salerno Rosso 2008
This 60-30-10 Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Aglianico blend from southern Italy delivers beautiful purity and intensity. Aromas here include blackberry, tobacco, leather, rum cake and polished black stone. It tastes firm and full on the palate and could use a few more years of cellar aging.
Dense yet tightly wound, with a dark core of black cherry, blackberry and plum framed by firm tannins. Hints of ash, espresso and bitter almond fill the grippy finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Aglianico. Best from 2012 through 2020. 2,500 cases made.
