LaStella Allegretto Merlot Pie Franco 2019

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAllegretto Piè Franco is a rare, ungrafted, single-vineyard merlot rooted in white silica sand in the south Okanagan. In Italy, when a vine grows on its rootstock, it is referred to as piè franco. Winemaker Severine is the force behind this super fresh version of merlot, pitching spicy red plums and desert scrub. The attack is lit by acidity and minerality with black raspberry and medium dry, youthful tannins. This merlot is built to age and has a solid decade of ageing in bottle before we get its best. Very Tuscan-like.Tasted: 23 December 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 65.00 winery direct Producer: LaStellaDistributors: Winery Direct
