Vacation Wines - 2016 Petruccino, Podere Forte
2016 Petruccino, Podere Forte
I tasted the 2015 eight months ago and was eager to pull the cork of the 16. The first vintage of Petruccino with 100% Sangiovese. The nose is rich and bold with gogeous notes of spicy licorice, ripe black cherries, violets, saw dust and the intriguing scent of a fresh hockey puck.
The taste is concentrated, energetic and pure with notes of ripe cherries, chrushed tiles, sweet violets pastilles and rosemary. Very, very long. Impressive now but will become even better with 5+ years in the cellar.
