Aromas of ripe cherry with a hint of green bell pepper rise up from this deep ruby wine. Its vivid tannins support flavors of black cherry, raspberry, milk chocolate and violet. A note of orange zest marks the bright finish.
Talento is based around Monastrell - AKA Mourvedre, Mataro, or Garrut depending on where it's cultivated - the thick-skinned varietal known for making wines that are intense, tannic, and meaty wines with great power! In fact, the tannin structure on the varietal is so potent that it earned the nickname "the dog strangler" (étrangle-chien) in France for its level of dryness! But rest assured here, the balance produced from the outstanding team at Ego has this wine humming on all cylinders! Bright fruit notes, tons of depth and character, and a zippy, fresh finish!
This wonderful wine should be a case buy for any red lover that's looking for a rich, complex bottle to pull out on any night without having to see a loan officer beforehand. It checks all the boxes on delectability, and has us brimming from ear to ear!
