Tenuta Sette Cieli Scipio 2016 75cl
“The 2016 Scipio combines leafy Cabernet Franc and breezy coastal Tuscany with great results. It has a delicious nose of black fruits, damp earth, a touch of dark chocolate and herbal scents, even a touch of seaweed. In the mouth it has plenty of intensity, polish, focus and grip. A stony quality tightens up the palate as it corkscrews through the core of black fruits, while currants, raspberry, chocolate, herbs and raspberry leaf dance around. There’s a splash of coffee and peppery spice at the end and although it’s a touch dry on the finish at present, it features persistent fresh acidity.”
De wijn is gemaakt van 85% Cabernet Sauvignon druiven en 15% Cabernet Franc. De wijn rijpt maar liefst 24 maanden in Frans eiken.
