Pakravan Papi - Prunicce Toscana 2014
A Super Tuscan this evening - Blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
Pakravan Papi Prunicce Toscana 2014 (85 tsomw points)
In the glass a dark red color with garnet reflections.
On the palate intense aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries, plums with hints of chocolate and some herbs.
On the palate medium-bodied and round. Tight- medium tannins and high acidity with ripe red fruit, cedar and chocolate. Long finish with vanilla.
The Tuscan coast of the Val di Cecina is renowned everywhere for its Cabernets, but for ages past, Sangioveto has sovereignly dominated its slopes. Prunicce blends the delicate and fruitful aromas of Sangiovese piccolo with those, more spicy and austere of Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc.
A blend, halfway between tradition and novelty, where plum and red fruit prevail, that easily withstands aging for some years.
