- ABV 14.5%
- Closure: Stelvin
A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Sangiovese, winemaker Joe Grilli employs the Italian Ripasso technique to produce this wine. Newly fermented Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon is pumped over the dried grape skins from the Joseph Moda for additional fermentation. The wine is then pressed and matured for 12 months in a mixture of 40% new French and American oak barriques.
This blends combination of rich, savoury fruit and its fleshy mouthfeel make it almost irresistible.
Totally opaque black dark red core with a dark red hue. Strongly scented, the nose expels prominent ripe blackcurrant and dark cherry aromas which meld into cedary tobacco characters, earthy black olive, subtle dried herbs and spice. Medium to full bodied, perfectly ripened blackcurrant and maraschino fruit is rich, fleshy and delivered with superb intensity. Underneath is vanillin cedar, dried herbs, earthy tobacco characters and spice. Seamlessly integrated smooth tannins lead into a long savoury aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
An 86/14% blend uses the Italian ripasso technique: newly fermented sangiovese and cabernet are pumped over dried gapes skins ex Primo Joseph Moda. Joe Grilli says '17 has produced some of the best quality fruit he has seen in years, and it shines in this intensely flavoured, bright wine, with juicy red and black cherry/berry fruit, fine tannins and oak. Drink by 2037.
