MY WINE OF THE MONTH
Bolgheri Rosso DOC 2016 Tenuta Le Colonne
Some great wines this month competing for the top spot with some lovely Rieslings in the mix which nearly took my choice.
I chose the Bolgheri Rosso featured on yesterday’s virtual wine tasting.
I love this wine, from “Super Tuscan” territory, home to the great “Sassicaia”.
An entry level wine from this famous wine producing region that lies between Livorno and Piombino along the Etruscan Coastline. A blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon the wine is intense, full bodied, elegant and fresh.
Hints of black fruits, with delicate hints of vanilla accompanying the bouquet. The tannins are plush and the wine has a long persistent finish. Superb with roast meats, beef steak, roasted lamb and game.
