Description

Bolgheri Rosso Impronte 2018 Giorgio Meletti Cavallari

Cabernet Sauvignon 70% e Cabernet Franc 30%.

Intense ruby red, almost bright.

The nose is very intense, varied and fine. Snocciola aromas declined with elegance, confirming the class that Cabernet reaches on the Tuscan coast. Wild fruit, with blackberry and plum and green peppers and Mediterranean herbs, such as thyme and savory. The eucalyptus and the pine scents enliven it also in this vintage, and then the wonderful spicy notes.

On the palate it is endowed with great volume and wonderful structure. The sip has thickness and creaminess, but the hardness keeps it upright, so as to be both powerful and elegant. Very deep and adorably multifaceted, it stays in the mouth with personality. The finish is very persistent with returns of aromatic herbs, spices and withered flowers.

A great Bolgheri. A great Tuscan red, and consequently a great Italian wine.

Happily accompanies many dishes of traditional Italian cuisine. Excellent with grilled meats and stewed meats. Spicy legume dishes, with cumin and fresh turmeric root, are also indulged with praise.
