Roccapesta Riserva Morellino di Scansano

75 cl

This has the same composition as the regular Roccapesta (96% Sangiovese & 4% Ciliegiolo), but is aged for an additional 6 months in French oak, and 6 months in the bottle. This brings the total ageing time to 3 years, and adds an extra supple richness to the Riserva.

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Enticing on the nose with aromas of fruit liqueurs, dark chocolate, coffee and creme caramel.
Palate Dry and medium bodied with firm, rich tannins and well balanced acidity. Flavours of red cherries, chocolate, exotic spices, burnt toast and leather. Quite savoury in nature, with an unmistakanly Italian character and good complexity.

Restaurant Magazine 4 Stars ‘It is a supple, medium rich, complex Riserva showing some signs of bottle bouquet. It is full bodied, very smoothly textured, well balanced, and long and lightly tannic on the finish, tasting of plum, black liquorice, toast, tobacco, and leather. Fine quality.’
