Wine Tasting Note: Riolite Scaranto Rosso, 1999, Colli Euganei, Veneto, Italy.
Available from Oddbins for £7.99. (A small parcel available off-line only).
Colli Euganei is a small region near Padua... This is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon but it is not in the Bordeaux style (as I have seen written on other websites). More fruit, more Italian style, a certain robustness. Yes, it is made with Bordeaux grapes but the style is very different. Fruit upfront, tannins and dryness in the middle (food required) then a big tannic-led finish. Succulent and flavoursome. Lovely. Alcohol 13%.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100
