Bodegas Fontana ‘Oveja Tinta’ Graciano 2014

Other Red from Spain
Review Date : 26-Nov-2016
Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour, youthful in appearance. The nose is elegant and well-concentrated with lifted dark raspberry and blackberry fruit aromas along with nuances of violet florals and whole berry fermentation confectionary elements. Medium-full bodied, up-front and sweetly rich flavours of raspberries, blackberry jam, violets and confectionary fill the mouth and are enlivened by bright and lively background acidity. The mouthfeel is soft with supple tannin extraction, and the wine flows smoothly, leading to a luscious, lingering finish. This is an up-front, sweet-fruited, lively Graciano with raspberry and blackberry jam flavours and a supple palate. Serve with pasta, pizza and barbecued fare over the next 3 years. 100% Graciano from the Ucles region, fermented to 14.0% alc., bottled as a Joven wine without oak maturation. 2,157 dozen made. 17.0+/20 Feb 2016 RRP $19.95
