I generally shy away from super Tuscans but this was delicious. Floral perfume, complete.

Welcome to the long Holiday weekend. Tonight I have opened the 2016 Fattoria La Massa Toscana Super Tuscan. The blend is 65% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

On the nose I am getting black plum, blackberry, black cherry, red currant, licorice, menthol, dried roses and dry earth.

The palate reveals the notes of tart cherry, plum, raspberry, red currant, violet, licorice and dry earth.

The wine is full bodied with a round velvety mouthfeel, medium + acidity and medium + fine mouth coating tannins that lead to a fresh long finish. Hopefully everyone has a fun holiday weekend planned and let it be a safe one. Nostrovia!

Full bodied and definitely Tuscan. Sangiovese and Merlot blend from Panzano, heart of Chianti. Great QPR.
