Indaco Toscana Merlot Sangiovese Rosato 2019

InSerrata Indaco Rosato Toscana 2019 Tuscany, Italy


This week's
#MerlotThursday is an interesting Rosé from Italy.

Neon orange in color with a peachy hue.

Strong nose of over ripen citrus fruits, apples, spices, light vegetables, cherries and raspberries.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with apples, citrus, raspberries, ripe limes, almonds, bitter herbs, earth and vegetables.

Spicy finish with bitter herbs.

This is an elegant Merlot based Rosé from Tuscany.

Soft and smooth with a nice mouthfeel. Gets earthier once it opens up.

Easy drinking and good by itself or with food. Paired nicely with Brie cheese and fresh berries.

A blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Sangiovese. Organic.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$28.

Cilento Aglianico 2012

Rubber and coffee grounds at first, but it’s just some primary funk blowing off. Then sappy with tamarind, nice texture and sweetness. Intriguing, and increasingly delicious. — 9 days ago

Pala

Riserva Cannonau di Sardegna 2017

This past Friday night I opened the 2017 Pala Cannonau di Sadengna Reserva. This is a 100% Garnacha from Serdiana, Sardegna, Italy.

On the nose there is strawberry, raspberry, cherry, licorice, tobacco, cinnamon and earth.

On the palate I am finding strawberry, cherry, raspberry, licorice, cinnamon, leather, dried herbs and earth.

This wine is medium to medium + body a nice smooth mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium + grippy tannins that leave you with a long red fruit earthy finish. I hope everyone's weekend was eventful and are looking forward to the week ahead. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
