MASSALTO Cinsault, Royal Slope ‘Extravanganza’ 2020

Totally different from the 2019, this Extravaganza also uses 100% carbonic maceration and is barrel aged in neutral oak. However, this Cinsault gives 14.5% alcohol and is a much more rich and brooding in the glass. The 2020 was picked later to see what type of wine it would produce compared to the early pick of 2019. Even though it uses no new oak, you get some spicy and oaky characteristics in the glass along with aspects of black plum, boysenberry, and pencil shavings. Medium-plus acidity, medium-plus tannin complete the wine.
