Marrano Veneto Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2015

Delectable Wine

The 2015 Marrano, an equal-parts blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is a total pleasure on the nose, with a seductive mix of violets, mint and crushed blueberries and cherries. This is juicy in character, with racy acidity that enlivens its core of ripe wild berry fruits. Salty mineral tones and hints of balsamic spice saturate the palate. The 2015 tapers off with a pleasantly bitter tinge, leaving a resonance of dark chocolate and mentholated freshness. The Marrano is the value score from the Vignalta portfolio. Released late, it promises a more mature yet still wonderfully lively experience. (Eric Guido, Vinous, February 2024)

Sirio Colli Euganei Moscato Secco 2014

Explosive aromatics, laser-like focus. Telltale aroma of fresh ginger, also picking up orange zest, bitter lemon pith, minty herbs, loads of freshness and super charged acidity. Very musky and powerful perfume, very similar to Alsatian muscat. Lovely aperitif wine. — 6 years ago

@Chris MacLean I think so (I just tasted, didn't buy)...likely in the $30 range.
