Cordelio Curtefranca Rosso D.O.C. V.Q.P.R.D. Bonomi Italy 2009
Intense red colour, with extraordinarily deep garnet tinges. After the initial intense and almost explosive bouquet, notes of ripe fruit contrast, followed by the scents of spices, wood and coffee to complete the aromatic picture. The full and dry flavour has a rare balance where the acidity and tannins counter each other making for a perfect amalgam. A surprisingly elegant wine, with incredibly fine and round tannins perfect for the palate giving a very delicate sensation. Great final aromatic persistence.
