Fausto Tannat 2015

£15.00

A delicious, complex, five year old red which packs a real punch, this example of an under-appreciated French grape variety is arguably the best value wine on the entire Go Brazil range. 

As the name suggests, Tannat wines are to a greater or lesser extent tannic, so best enjoyed with robust, well flavoured dishes. See suggestions below..

Description

ABV: 13%

APPEARANCE:  Very deep purple-black colour

AROMAS: Attractive perfumed dark fruits with some oaky and leathery notes

TASTE:  Richly concentrated black fruits overlaying spice and coffee flavours. Medium to heavy bodied but supple nonetheless, with pleasantly well rounded tannins

FOOD PAIRING: Spicy or very well seasoned red meat dishes, especially beef, lamb or pork

OVERALL: With its weight and complexity, this Fausto will appeal both to Tannat aficionados and maybe also those who appreciate a Shiraz or Pinotage style of red

If you like this, try Reserva Tannat – the ‘older brother’ of Fausto, barrel-aged for longer and with an even greater depth of flavour
