The Winetraders

With a total production of less than 3000 bottles, this could easily pass for an estate’s reserve wine. This picture-postcard vintage has produced a beautifully-etched but very backward Ripasso. Aged for 6 months in 2nd and 3rd fill French barrique then 6 months in 2000L Garbellotto botte this shows a gorgeous nose of red cherry, tinned strawberry, blackberry, with allspice and clove from oak. The palate is surprisingly light driven by lemony acidity with exotic notes of Turkish Delight, plum, damson, and wild rose. Fine tannins from oak and grape support the fruit and drive the elegant finish. This needs time to unfurl. 2026-2030–MP
