Caccia al Piano Ruit Hora 2019

Tuscany, ItalyThis organic red is a 65/25/5/5 mix of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, and syrah, and it is voluptuous from front to back. The grapes are grown on a combination of soils rich in silt, clay, limestone, mineral-rich sands. Each variety is aged separately for 16 months in large 35- 50hL oval oak barrels, and after the blend is made, it spends a further six months in the bottle. The result is a rich, mouth-filling, graceful red, with classic blackcurrant, licorice, savoury dried herbs, and the perfect dryness in the finish. Somewhat reminiscent of the south Okanagan but with more refinement. Italian fans should stock up.Tasted: 10 March 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
