Here's an exceptional "Super Venetian" combining Cab Franc with the more traditional Corvina and Oseleta. And what a blend it is, opening with an amazing burst of dark cherry, raspberry, and tobacco, followed by plum, glycerin, raisin and other dried dark fruit, and touches of herbal and meaty savouriness. There's great balance coming from the three grapes, and the aromatic depth and complexity are replayed on the palate, the sweet dried fruit nicely complemented by fresh, zesty acidity, leading to exceptional length. A bit dull by the second day, but a fantastic wine at a fantastic price.
