Other Red Blends
Manincor Cassiano 2018
Bio wine. Ideally, drink now to 2028. Decanting time: will benefit from decanting.
With a dedication to biodiversity and quality, this Northern Italian Red will please both environmental philosophers and wine enthusiasts alike. The rich soils of the region where the Manincor estate is located make for an ideal foundation and the method of crushing each batch separately is an indication of the level of attention mirrored in every stages of the process.
The assorted blend of grapes result in a full, cherry red brightly catches one’s eye and carries through to the nose where the scent of ripened cherries is harmoniously intermixed with wild herbs and licorice. With a dry palate, the tannins are ripe, yet pleasingly smooth as a result of the malolactic fermentation, a secondary process in the fermentation that leads to a reduced acidity.
The initial aromatic and flavourful experience carries with consistent energy to a well-balanced mouthfeel as well as a light and scentful finish with refreshing notes of fresh herbs. This delightful Italian Red is best paired with piquant hard cheeses, a variety of well-seasoned meats as well as game or venison. For the loyal devotee, it is best served in a medium-large Bordeaux glass in order to fully experience the elegance and finesse this wine has to offer.
