Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot
Aged for 12 months in concrete tanks and barriques and 12 months in the bottle
Dark hues of ruby red and an aroma of perfect maturation that combine to evoke ripe dark fruit. Juicy freshness, characteristic smooth tannins, and just enough oak to tie these into a structured palate.
A true seducer that envelops the tongue in a succulent whirlwind.
Score: 93/100. “The 2016 ‘Pittoresco’ is a fantastic showing in the vintage. It instantly opens to inviting aromas of cherries and dark berries which are woven together with tobacco, grilled herbs, dried spice and leather nuances that all take shape. On the palate this possesses a medium body that is well-balanced with a wonderful combination of fruit and acidity which provide a gorgeous freshness that persists through the finish. This is drinking excellent today and also has the potential to evolve for a decade.”
“This is really beautiful and generous with plum and currant flavors, as well as ripe, rich tannins. Structured and flavorful. Drink after 2020.”
One black glass awarded in the 2019 edition.
