Duca di Montalbo 2007 Red 6 x 75cl
Nero d’Avola, Nero Cappuccio.
Only the best vintages from the oldest vineyards, over 50 years old, with a very low yield are elected to be Duca di Montalbo. Refined 48 months in barrique and large barrels.
2007 was a great vintage for red wines. It was characterized by a very hot summer with wide temperature ranges, until the end. These conditions lead to a perfect and exceptional maturation of the polyphenols and tannins: wines rich of polyphenolic character, but extremely fresh, with balsamic and spicy notes, smooth and velvety on the palate.
The nose is fresh and elegant. Hints of fresh red fruit emerge where blackberry, raspberry and plum stand out, it closes with spicy notes, aromatic vegetal hints such as rosemary and thyme. On the palate is powerful and structured: rich in tannins of exceptional quality, silky and elegant. Full-bodied and fresh at the same time, it reveals a great persistence.
