Tscharke 'The Master' Montepulciano 2011

Montepulciano the grape, not to be confused with Vino Nobile de Montepulciano, a Tuscan wine made from Sangiovese.

Black cherry, rose/ florals, violets - an attractive aromatic proposition.  Shows a deftness in the mouth, spicy - pepper, licorice - with a herbal twist.  Some graphite too, complex, yet paradoxically a delight in its simple structure.

Good savoury, ripe tannin concludes matters - lovely balance.  90 - Good

Tasted on: Tuesday 30th October, a Fruit Day
