Kellerei St. Pauls - Turmfeld Cabernet Riserva 2016 (88 TSW)
100 % Cabernet Sauvignon from Alto Adige. The grapes come from vineyards on steep and sunny slopes, in the towns of Missiano and San Paolo. About 350 meters above sea level, where the sun directly warms the roots for several hours every day.
The vines have an average age of about 20 years and after harvest the vinification involves fermentation in open wooden barrels and then maturation in spent tonneaux for about 12/1/ months.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a dark ruby ??red color.
On the medium nose aromas of black cherries, dark berries and cassis with hints of spices, dark chocolate, herbs and undergrowth.
On the palate dry, medium+:bodied with medium acidity and medium tannins. Round and warm in the mouth with nice and long aftertaste.
To pair with wild fowl, lamb, classic meat dishes and aged cheeses.
