2016 Fortissimo is comprised of 76% Merlot, 9% Sangiovese, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cabernet Franc. Albeit young, this wine is as outstanding as we thought it would be; all the components are married seamlessly together.
Overall the wine has fantastic layers of fruit and savoury flavours. Bing cherry mingles with red and black cherry fruit. Grilled aromatic herbs meet cured tobacco leaves. The Palate is layered and while is still young and morphed into itself, it still offers plenty of pleasure in youth. One built for early drinking or cellaring with a medium+ aging curve ahead.
