Silvio Nardi Turan Sant'antimo 2013
Petit Verdot 40% Sangiovese 30% Syrah 20% Colorino 10%
Moderately dark purple red with medium density. Mellow spicy oak on the nose and heading towards full-bodied and luscious in the palate. It’s spicy and savoury with a rustic peppery edge, sweet red and black fruit, chocolate, dried herbs and reasonably firm but supple rounded tannins. It reminds me in a way of a big, earthy, sweet, juicy, curranty Primitivo … but it's from the wrong region. Made from a blend of 40% Petit Verdot, 30% Sangiovese, 20% Syrah and 10% Colorino, this ‘Super Tuscan’ is smart, juicy and very delicious.
