Castello Vicchiomaggio Ripa della More 2016
Impenetrable ruby red colour. Mainly herbal and fruity, reminiscent of mint, blackcurrant and blueberry. It adds layers of dark chocolate, vanilla and juniper. Taste is full and enveloping with great class. Tannins are extremely polished and melted. It has a very long finish of blueberry with a hint of spice. Pair with main courses of stewed or braised meat.
The 2016 Ripa delle More, Vicchiomaggio's Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend, is powerful, dense and super-concentrated. Ripe delle More offers tons of richness in its dark fruit, spice, leather and chocolate flavors, but is also rather anonymous.
