Vintner: Tormaresca

Grape Varietal: Organic Red Blend (Aglianico 70%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%, Syrah 10%)

ABV: 14.5%

Year: 2012

Region: Italy

Appearance / Aroma / Body: Dark ruby red color with good legs. It smells tart and with a bit of floral sweetness. You can also smell the alcohol mixed throughout.

Taste / Feel: Light body that and fairly dry. This wine is quite delicious where the aromas nicely translate into each sip. At first, it’s tart but opens up into that floral sweetness towards the end. Overall, though, I wouldn’t say it’s a sweet wine, placing it somewhere between a 0 and a 1 – but I’m not sure what it’s actual sweetness index is.
