2016 Le Focaie Rocca di Montemassi

Great value, velvety Italian red

FWDC 91/100

Description

From the DOC of Maremma in Toscana, Le Focaie means 'flint' referring to the mineral-rich, gravelly soils the wines are grown in. There's a lot of winemaking in this wine for a relatively modest price, the wine spending 12 months in large oak barrels before a further few months aging in bottle prior to release. A velvety and plump style of Italian red, it is best served just below room temperature at around 16-17 degrees Celsius to accentuate the fresh cherry-like acidity.

Smells

Attractively scented with hints of violet, wild herbs, cherry and liquorice.

Tastes

Juicy and plump with tart cherry fruit and a focused acid line, the fine, grainy tannins building to a long, moreish finish. Obviously great with Italian food, but extremely versatile with all sorts of red meats and pasta-type dishes. Enjoy between now and 2022.
