Lidio Carraro Grande Vindima Tannat 2006

This wine is no longer available, however we are pleased to recommend the Tannats from Pizzato              ( under their ‘Reserva’ and ‘Fausto’ labels ), and look out also for the new ‘El Gaucho’ branded Tannat from Don Guerino, which will launch at the end of June



ABV: 16%

APPEARANCE:  Dark ruby with some ageing visible on rim

AROMAS:  Concentration of mulberry, dried plum and currant fruit

TASTE:  A rich cornucopia of flavours, with coffee, cocoa, tobacco, licorice and balsamic notes all discernible. Very full bodied, with mature tannins. Produced from late harvest, low-yielding vines, and only in the best vintages.

FOOD PAIRING: Intensely flavoured red meats or venison; or drink as a port-like digestif on its own or perhaps with dark chocolate

OVERALL:  A unique blockbuster of a wine, one for the connoisseurs!
