"This is a seriously complete red with plenty of chocolate, dark berry and spice character. Medium to full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Better in 2019 or later. Made from organic grapes."

Product Description:

"Belcore is a classic Tuscan blend composed mainly of Sangiovese (about 80%). The remaining part is constituted by Merlot, with eventual minor additions of other varieties.

Wine of great softness, of an intense purple colour. The olfactory profile is dominated by Sangiovese aromas, such as mammola (violet), but it is sweetened by the presence of Merlot tones such as blackberry and black cherry. In the mouth, the wine is fruity with notes of ripe blackberry. The Sangiovese’s tannin is moderated by the softness of Merlot. The long finish leaves the palate dry and tasty. It matches well red and white meat dishes, as well as medium-aged cheeses. It lends itself well to a long ageing of about eight to 10 years." - Winery
