Montepulciano Shiraz 2020 From Nif Bağları
A surprising buttery full bodied red without overpowering oakiness
🍷Color: deep and rich ruby
🍒Fruit: black cherry finish is dark fruit
👅Body: surprisingly full buttery
🌳Oak: none on nose no feel on palate.
\🧬Acidity: Med high
🎬Summary: I was pleasantly surprised at this one. It is a rich deep blend with an interesting choice of grapes. The label doesn’t mention oak barrel and I see little in the nose or palate but the grapes provide plenty of body tannin and flavor. cherry tobacco butter black fruit white pepper carob.
If you are looking for a rich, velvety red without an overpowering oak palate and smooth round tannins this is a good choice. At 2 years old it was enjoyable and I expect the fullness of the body will carry this forward for 3-4 more years.
