Valcalepio Rosso Riserva Colle Calvario 2015 Castello di Grumello

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon 60% e Merlot 40%

Intense ruby red color, with iridescent garnet shades.

On the nose it juggles intensity, quality and quantity, highlighting the class. The aromas of ripe fruit are followed by those of jam and dark berries. Notes of cherry come and go among those of undergrowth and flowers. Tobacco, vanilla and other sweet spices anticipate the vaguely smoky ones of ash. Finally, the chocolate blends with aromatic herbs, for a collective impression of the highest level. Remarkable is the cleanliness of the perfumes, declined without any smudging or uncertainty.

On the palate it confirms the same lineage of the nose. Excellent hardnesses, as a whole capable of supporting a truly remarkable volume. Creaminess and verticality, shape and substance. The whole is a voluptuous and fascinating symphony. The finish is very persistent between aromas of spices, Mediterranean scrub and withered flowers.

A great Lombard red wine capable of giving value to the whole denomination.
