Coriole's second release of our "Montimaro" blend - made from Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Negroamaro and Nero d'Avola.
The four varieties were co-fermented to create this medium bodied wine. A nose of rosehip, aniseed and cassis and a well-defined palate with chalky tannin and persistent flavour.
"A blend of montepulciano, sangiovese, negroamaro and nero d’avola that have been co-fermented, this is a neat meshing of the varieties, with dark forest berries, wild raspberries, master stock spices, kicked earth, warm terracotta notes, leather and fennel seeds. This has a silky glide through the palate, allied with fine but classically grippy tannins providing direction and firming up a savoury finish."
Young Gun of Wine
"Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Negroamaro and Nero d'Avola co-fermented to deliver an Italian superhero - less the cape. Bright and red fruit-driven early, it dances through the mouth with ease. Energetic, red and dark cherries sizzle before blackberries take charge. A slight crunch from well-managed acidiity adds further detail and pleasure. A wine screaming for food - it's just as delicious on its own mind you. Drink to five years. 92 points"
