"It had such a pretty aroma, loads of soft sweet cherry fruit with a mellow aniseed aroma coming off, and then warmed redcurrant jelly. The palate has a little fuzzy tannin at the start, then more of the cherry, some plum skin and a chocolate and jasmine emerging and a little smoke on the finish."
Cantine di Marzo has been in the same family ownership since 1647, since Scipione di Marzo left his home of San Paolo Belsito and settled in Tufo. His family became one of the major land owners in the region, with the family making money in the brimstone business. They have always made wine however, and more recently have become the leading producer of the white grape Greco.
What a wine - truffles, honey, cooked peaches and a lovely long, semi sweet palate. A fabulous example of a sweeter Vouvray. Wine available Mid May 2018. Contains Sulphites
Grenache comes to the fore, a super balance of fruit and spice. Fennel comes out with jammy red berries and spice. A lovely Chateauneuf du Pape from this great producer....
"Oyster shells, a little smoke and then lemon coming out. A nice, well balanced palate, good acidity, easy and with a hint of baked apple on the finish. Good"
