Tasca d'Almerita Tascante 'Ghiaia Nera' 2016 Review

Beautiful medium bodied red wine with herby notes of cherries and white pepper. As the wine breathes savory cinnamon pops up with an aroma of crushed hazelnuts. The palate is just right, with a great balance of fruit and acidity along with a tannin structure that does its job while not intruding the complexity. Throw this bottle in the fridge for 30 minutes and sip with a slight chill for maximum awesome.
