Profile

Smell

Ripe red plum, cherry and raspberry lead the charge on this juicy red, with hints of both fresh berries and a mixed-berry jam. A leafy, brambly note lurks in the background, adding a savoury note that's joined by hints of fresh herbs and dry leaves.

Taste

Soft and generous on the palate, the beautifully-integrated Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon each contribute to a harmonious whole. Red and black fruit notes are the most prominent, but the well-balanced oak shows notes of vanilla and warm baking spice. The finish is dry and herbaceous with a pleasant acidity.

Pairing

Soft tannins and balanced acid make this perfect for fall, pairing well with Tourtière, roast poultry, or hearty vegetable stew.

Aromas and Flavours

Plum

Sweet, fruity and sensual, similar stone fruit aromas to a peach, but without the 'fuzziness.'

Cherry

Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!

Raspberry

Tangy or sweet, juicy or tart: more sophisticated than a strawberry, but just as lush.

Jam

Spreading grandma's homemade jam on your morning toast (yes, the bread was homemade too).

Leaf

When was the last time you raked up all the leaves in your yard and jumped in the pile?

Description

The whimsical label that graces bottles of Cantina di Costoza's Rosso Del Molino Classico may lead you to believe this isn't a wine to be taken seriously, but don't be fooled! This blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon is more than meets the eye, a flavour-packed blend from historic Cantina di Custoza. Located just south-east of Lake Garda, this region of northern Italy is known for soft, fuller-bodied reds that are juicy and approachable. Blending native Italian grape varieties with international stalwarts like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, reds from Custoza tend to be juicy and approachable. This Rosso del Molino Classico is a great example of the style, and should be enjoyed at about 17 C now or over the next 2-3 years.
