2013 Fortivo Red Bordeaux Blend, 1.5L
The last of our 2013 vintage...
Our Bordeaux-style blend wine is deeply colored from dark crimson to black. Fortivo means "Strong" in Italian, and this everyday red drinking wine crafts a juicy, lusty blend with intense Malbec, fruity Cabernet and jammy Merlot. With opening aromas of Bing cherry and blueberries, it has secondary notes of roasted meat and chocolate. Dense, tannin-enveloped fruit of blackberry and black cherry becomes plummy and cassis-like as it opens, and bright acidity lengthens the extraordinary finish. Layered and complex, enjoy now by decanting or cellar for another 7-10 years.

"Aromas of blueberries and flowers follow through to a full body, round and velvety tannins and a savory finish. A Bordeaux-style blend, very approachable now-why wait?" -James Suckling
