2017 Piaggia Riserva Carmignano Tuscany
Winemaker Notes: Very intense, almost impenetrable, clear ruby red color. Aromas of ripe fruit, embellished with elegant hints of tobacco, chocolate and sweet spices. On the palate it expresses a powerful structure but also, with a measured balance, soft fruit against the round and mature tannins. The finish is long and fruity. It goes well with red meat and game, extra mature cheeses and quality cured meats.
Blend:70% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet FrancCRITICAL ACCLAIM
James Suckling - "Lots of ripe fruit that verges on being jammy with dried-berry, cherry and chocolate character. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins and an intense finish. Needs some time to soften. Try after 2022."
