Monte Giove Rubicone Sangiovese/Merlot IGT 2016

Blended Red from Italy - Other
Review Date : 26-Mar-2018
Very dark, deep, black-hued purple ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim, youthful in appearance. The nose is elegantly concentrated with a rounded and well-packed core of ripe dark-red berry fruit along with notes of black plums, unfolding fragrant dark-red floral elements. A little whole berry ferment jam-like lift shows, the aromatics possessing freshness and depth. Medium-bodied, the palate is moderately concentrated with up-front dark-red cherry fruit entwined with dark herb and curranty notes. The fruit is sweet and juicy, and enlivened by soft acidity, and underlined by light tannin extraction lending background structure. The flavours carry with good drive along a rounded line, leading to a soft finish of cherries and currants. This is a sweet and juicy Rubicone red with cherry and curranty flavours and light structure. Serve with pasta, pizza and barbecued fare over the next 3 years. A blend of Sangiovese and Merlot, from the Rubicone, north-east Italy, fermented to 12.5% alc. 17.0/20 Mar 2018 RRP $15.00
