The Italian partner to H&L’s Tempranillo.
Hastwell & Lightfoot, Montepulciano, McLaren Vale, 2017
Molasses and purple/black fruit with an inky, stony undertone. Seared vanilla bean oak and dark roasted coffee beans. Dry palate, lacking a little brightness. Dark berry concentrated fruit with waxy mouthfeel and a clipped finish. Somewhat tough-chewing by itself, better with food.
