Quercheto di Castellina
Another great Merlot from Tuscany.
Quercheto di Castellina - Podalirio 2013 (88 tsomw points)
Deep garnet color and garnet hue.
On the nose quite young with sour berry fruit, brambly accents and a ok amount of wet wood, alcohol, leather and spices.
On the palate it's full, with bright sour cherry fruit, smooth sweet cherry plum acidity, and smooth sweet tannins with a slight cedary underpinning that flows into a long clean bright berry fruit finish. Quite pleasant; it will age nicely.
