2016 Le Focaie Rocca di Montemassi

Great value, velvety Italian red

FWD Co. Panel f91

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.
