Hastwell & Lightfoot Montepulciano 2017

"Wines made for eating", nice tagline from the Hastwell and Lightfoot crew - a brand name I feel I've known for an age. 

Initially deep and dark, before the onset of lighter and brighter fruit sitting at its core. It's boysenberry, perhaps a suggestion of raspberry in the frame too. 

I'd paired this with some kebabs that we'd liberally introduced to some oregano, so that herbal - and Mediterranean - association ran long. 

The tannin feels a little gruff, almost ferrous; the wine itself carrying an air, a lightness as it springs across the palate. 89
