2015 Planeta Burdese Cabernet Sauvignon Blend Sicilia DOC Sicily
Winemaker Notes: A powerful red, structured on a dense and important tannin texture balanced by a decisive alcoholic content. On the palate – ripe, very dense and rich fruit. The flavors are bilberry and preserved sour cherries mixed with leather which gradually develop to intense aromas of cherry, cocoa and rosemary.
A wine with attitude, decisive and energetic enough to be enjoyed on its own or matched with something just as strong and full of character such as casseroles or game. For a vegetarian alternative, try grilled radicchio with mature cheese or almost caramelized roast onions.
Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc
James Suckling - "A suave blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc with dried blackcurrants, leather and dried elderberries. Full-bodied and structured with iron-clad tannins and a pretty backbone of refreshing acidity. Drink from 2021."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc offers power and density with lots of sound varietal purity. The 2015 Sicilia Menfi Burdese is a textured red wine with rich and succulent characteristics that flow to black fruit, spice, tar and smoke. I like the restrained intensity of this sunny and warm vintage."
Wine Enthusiast - "Made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, this opens with aromas of dark-skinned berry, bell pepper and tilled earth. The structured palate offers black plum, white pepper, mocha and tobacco alongside smooth tannins."
