Castello Romitorio RomiTòro IGT Toscana 2019
Romitòro IGT Toscana is an elegant red wine blend of Syrah and Petit Verdot, grape varieties that thrive in Tuscany's moderate climate. Matured for approximately 12 months in oak and bottled unfiltered this is a bold Super Tuscan that attests to the fact that French varietals can give exceptional quality in Italy, whilst retaining an undeniably Tuscan character. "Fruit is foremost: Marasca cherry meets ripe plum in a gutsy, full-bodied package. On the palate there is ample fruit, freshness and quite a bit of body: the tannins are bold but countered by so much fruit that they attain an almost mochavanilla sweetness and come across smooth on the dense, full body. The finish is warming and rounded, a mouthful of big, fruity exuberance that keeps its mojo for quite a number of years."
