2018 Dainero, Castiglion del Bosco, Tuscany

£18.25 inc. VAT

A very impressive fruit driven Super Tuscan from the Maremma coast.

It is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc grown on an 11 hectare estate  just north of Bolgheri (home of Sassicaia). The grapes are grown on a well ventilated vineyard at an altitude of 450 metres which protects them from hot Tuscan sun. After vinification the wine is matured for 6 months in a mixture of new and old French barrique.

I was very impressed with this when I tasted it with its upfront bright red cherry character. Plenty of structure and concentration here but wonderful freshness too, the costal winds doing their job beautifully. Satisfyingly rounded and spicy on the finish. Plenty of pleasure to be had from this excellent example of yet another outstanding vintage in Tuscany. Drink now or hold for 2-3 years.
