Hastwell & Lightfoot Montepulciano 2017

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.

RRP: $25
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 16/20
