Portico Rosso, Vignaiolo Fanti (2011) - Trentino Alto Adige
Cabernet Sauvignon + Cabernet Franc + Merlot + Teroldego
Dark, deep colour. Intense nose full of spices. The first sip has the pleasant bitterness typical of the indigenous grape Teroldego, then the Cabernet structure and lenght and the ripe fruit of the Merlot. Complex, with ripe fruit but well balanced with spices and flowers notes. There is a nice contrast between drinkableness and power.
It pairs very well with meat dishes like beef or lamb, or also mushrooms.
