2018 Rosso di Baci

2018 Rosso di Baci
Mediterranean Estate, Fair Play

Tasting Notes

It is easy to love this wine’s cherry pie, licorice, blueberry and cinnamon spice aromatics, which create a beautiful overall blend of earth and fruit notes. It is silky smooth on one hand, but with an undercurrent of supple tannins from the Nebbiolo and Cabernet that adds weight without being grippy. Spicy tannins, nutty flavors, and medium body round out this wine.

Winemaking Notes

We harvested each of the varietals in this wine on the same day in September, 2018 from our Mediterranean Estate vineyard and a neighboring vineyard. We had enough of a crop that we decided to pull some of each varietal into a field blend that we fermented all together. During fermentation we did daily punchdowns for 10 days then pressed the wine to barrel for aging.

A field blend of 49% Montepulciano, 24% Nebbiolo, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot and 1% Corvina. 125 cases produced.

Food Pairing

Wild boar, hot Italian sausage, lamb chops, and strong cheeses should all pair with this wine. Wood-fired pizza or lasagna will also be delicious pairings!

Aging

Aged 22 months in 60% 2nd use and 40% 3rd use French Oak barrels.
