TENUTA MARAVEJA ‘RoccoRosso’

When it comes to making wine Gildo Gennaro is about as interesting as it gets, making his wines according to whatever he feels like doing each year, rarely making the same wine twice. His vineyards are totally organic and as far as his wine, the 2012 ‘RoccoRosso’ is an incredibly massive wine, that is impressive for is power, concentration and intensity. It displays an opaque pitch-dark color and offers intense aromas and flavors of black cherry, crème de cassis, raisin, chocolate, licorice, violets and spices. This is as full-bodied as it gets with loads of tannin and a rich, luscious mouth feel. It ends with a mouth coating finish that leaves behind thick layers of sweetly ripened dark fruits and spices. This is certainly unique wine that only fans of this type of style will find very interesting, but certainly is not for the faint of heart. (Best 2014-2024) - June, 2014 (JD)
