“Alarico” IGP, Terre Nobili (2017) – Calabria
Grapes : Nerello Mascalese & Cappuccio.
Big, rich and creamy red,grown on clay soils close to the Sila National Park. Cassis and dark fruits, spice and vanilla, for fillet steak! This wine is the southern Italian sun captured in the glass, rich and full of dark fruits and spice.....complex, intense, persistent bouquet; lengthy finish with notes of wild red berries, cassis and hints of iris, cotugnata and eucalyptus followed by an enveloping and spicy taste with dense but not aggressive tannins. The 6 months barrique ageing rounds out and softens this beautifully silky southern Italian red. This is seriously intense wine.
Food Pairing : BBQ, Roasted and grilled meat, Aged cheese, Blue cheese.
