Val delle Rose Aurelio 2016
A deep, rich ruby red in color, Aurelio offers a rich bouquet of mature red fruits, intense dark spices, pepper and chocolate. On the palate Aurelio is supple, soft and opulent, with velvety tannins. Very well- balanced and long finishing, Aurelio is definitely a standard bearer for the Maremma Toscana DOC. 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc
This is really hitting a sweet spot, with ripe, effusive cherry fruit setting the pace for the succulent texture and well-integrated structure. Wild rosemary, thyme, cedar and iron notes play supporting roles as this red remains saturated and long. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2028.
The aromas of blackcurrants and dried flowers are very attractive in this red. Full body and round, velvety tannins, showing lovely texture and tension.
