2016 Guado Al Melo Bacco in Toscana Rosso IGT ~ Red Wine
750 ml bottle
80% Sangiovese 20% Syrah grapes from vineyards in the hills of Castagneto Carducci (Bolgheri) that run along the Tuscan coastline. Made without correctives or additives, which would alter the original characteristics of the grapes. On lees for 9 months in small French oak barrels (only 10% new).
An intriguing deep purplish colour with a predominant scent of black fruit, black cherry, and plum, brightened up by a pleasant hint of spice. Rich and balanced tannins, with a lovely freshness.
A very versatile wine: it pairs well with cured meats, medium or aged cheeses, pizza, pasta with spicy or tomato-based sauces, roast duck, roast or grilled meats, and game.
