2015 Tirrenico, Mazzei

A tasting sample from The Wine Agency.

2015 Tirrenico, Mazzei
This is a Bordeaux blend from the hills above "Mar Tirreno" and consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Alicante.
The nose is young, fresh and balsamic with notes of ripe red currants, plums, matchbox, leather and a fine low keyed salty aroma that may come the closeness to the sea. A kiss of oak. Very, very good.
The taste is tight and fine with notes of fresh rosemary, cherries, smoke, leather, asphalt and chrushed rocks. A long, fine finish. A touch of salt in the finish as well. Drinking fine now and the coming 8+ years. A bargain for 16 Euro.
90p   (tasted 2018/10)
