Torre Zambra Colle Maggio
Rich and seductive on the nose, this opaque red is packed with layers of black currant, blackberries, and mixed-berry jam. This vintage shows the same smoky, spicy notes of their past releases, with hints of pipe tobacco, coffee, and cloves.
Plush and full-bodied, this is a modern, fruit forward take on Montepulciano, with plenty of ripe fruit and soft, developed tannins. Blackberry and blueberry flavours sit alongside earthier notes of leather, dried herbs, cacao, and dark chocolate. There's a pleasant acidity that lingers on the long, dry finish.
Full-bodied with robust structure and balanced acidity, this red calls for protein, so matched with a grilled steak or roast beef served with glazed carrots and roasted beets.
Aromas and Flavours
Sometimes also referred to as 'cassis', this black fruit tasting note is common in red wines.
A little sweet, a little tart, this black fruit is rather quiet but persistent.
Spreading grandma's homemade jam on your morning toast (yes, the bread was homemade too).
The smell of a freshly rolled cigar, slightly sweet, and earthy - just like Grandpa's hugs.
A sweet spice aroma that indicates oak-ageing - think vanilla bean frappuccino!
Handling and Serving
2022 - 2029
Villamagna territory has a century-old tradition of vine-growing, attested to by its own name - “villa magna”, which translates as “big plot” - and has always been considered ideal for cultivating Montepulciano grapes. The area possesses a unique micro-climate that makes this one of the best places in the world to grow grapes and make wine. The placement of the sea and the mountains generate frequent and abrupt temperature changes, a climate feature that is the secret behind very perfumed white wines and complex red wines with long aging potential. This wine is made with strictly selected grapes from the Colle Maggio hillside in Villamagna. The winery’s vines are perfectly situated to the southeast, on rich limestone and clay soils. Low yields allow the production of red wine with great complexity, which are the purest expression of their native land. The grapes are handpicked and collected in small wooden crates in the first ten days of October. Once in the cellars, the long maceration in steel tanks at controlled temperature guarantees optimal colour extraction from the skins. The wines mature for six months in concrete vats, for a further eight months in French and Slavonian oak and, finally, for four months in the bottle. If you love big, bold Italian reds, this may be your new favourite! This wine should be served at 18 C. Cellar from now to 2029.
