Description

98/100 Luca Maroni… Masca del Tacco Old Vines Zinfandel (Zinfandel is the American name for this Italian Primitivo grape migrated to Californian soils in the 1900’s). Crafted from very old bush vine IGT hand harvested Primitivo fruit… super powerfully concentrated juice from natural low yields. Everything about this powerhouse Italian red is natural and hand tended from vine to glass. Rich, opulent and full-bodied, it totally saturates your palate with black fruits, cocoa, coffee, subtle herbs and finishes with a balsamic savoury freshness. If you like mouth filling reds crammed with rich flavours in a smooth body (aka old vine Barossa Shiraz), a tirade of deliciousness, this impressive Italian red is for you! It comes at a striking value for money price… a fraction of the cost of genuine old vine Barossa Shiraz. It’s concentration, power and weight are benchmark sub $30.

Smells

A complex nose of blackberry, plum jam, red flowers, humus, cocoa, and coffee, giving way to aromatic herbs and a fresh balsamic streak framing the bouquet.

Tastes

Structured, powerful, intensely fruity, and floral, with a very long persistent finish, balanced by a refreshing balsamic twist. Fine mouthcoating tannins embrace the saturating black fruits completing the package, making for an excellent, luscious, gluggable red wine. This will pair well with meat and truffle preparations, roasted lamb, medium-aged and blue cheeses, spicy food or alone as a meditation wine.
