Copertino Rosso Riserva 2010
|Region||Italy, Puglia, Copertino|
Deep red-ruby. Generous, nicely focused aromas and flavors of red fruit, tar, licorice and underbrush. Showcases marvelous acid-fruit-tannin balance, finishing long, smooth and breezy. A knockout wine and an exceptional buy for the money.
Beautifully fragrant, with exotic spice, this medium- to full-bodied red is plush and velvety on the palate, with light, fine tannins and a ripe juiciness to the flavors of plumped cherry and prune, candied orange peel, violet and graphite. At a decade old already, this is aging gracefully. Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. Drink now through 2025. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 20,000 cases made, 4,000 cases imported.
