Fattoria le Terrazze Rosso Conero 2015
|Region||Italy, Marche, Rosso Conero|
|Brand||Fattoria le Terrazze|
The 2015 Le Terrazze Rosso Conero is fruit-forward but also wonderfully fresh, showing a mix of cherry, raspberry, sweet herbs and spice on the nose. On the palate, silky textures flood the senses with ripe berry intensity, framed by cooling minerality and inner earth notes, and brisk acids maintain freshness. The finish is medium in length, resonating on ripe fruits and violet floral tones with just a hint of tannin. This is always one of my favorite bottlings from Le Terrazze, vinified in large oak barrels, and taken up a notch by the warmth of the 2015 vintage.
Tangy cherry detail meets dark black currant fruit flavor in this bright, medium- to full-bodied red, with chewy tannins. Accents of mandarin orange peel and dried sage linger on the firm finish. Drink now through 2022. 3,750 cases made, 300 cases imported.
