Fabio Motta Bolgheri Rosso Superiore Le Gonnare 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Bolgheri|
Once again, Fabio Motta knocks it out of the ballpark. The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Le Gonnare is another super rich and densely concentrated Tuscan blended wine from this classic vintage. This blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Syrah is soft and velvety. In fact, the wine plays its best cards in terms of the supple and soft nature of the mouthfeel and tannins. The wine is partially aged (only 20%) in new oak.
A racy style, with vivid acidity driving the black cherry, blackberry and violet flavors. Firm and taut, showing an intensity that stretches the finish. Flashes of mineral and earth line the aftertaste. Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2021 through 2028. 500 cases made, 35 cases imported.
