Castello Vicchiomaggio FSM 2018
FSM (Federico Secondo Matta) is Castello Vicchiomaggio's flagship, Super Tuscan red wine made in strictly limited quantities. Named after John Matta's father, it is 100% Merlot sourced from vines grown on a steep south-east facing plot of the Vicchiomaggio estate. Matured in French barriques for 16 months and a further year in bottle before release the Castello Vicchiomaggio FSM has a rich and complex nose. Concentrated raspberry syrup and black cherry, then layers and layers of tertiary aromas like cedar, chocolate, herbs and graphite are to the fore. The palate is full, intense and well structured with balanced acidity and ripe tannins. The finish is long and refreshing.
