2015 Bruna 'Pulin' Granaccia, Barbera & Syrah. Colline Savonesi IGT-Liguria-ITALY. 750ml
This wine is the result of a project aimed at rediscovering and promoting the Granaccia, a grape variety native to Liguria and similar to the Grenache of the Southern Rhône Valley. It is grown together with Syrah and Barbera grapes.
Again, this is quite something. Fermentation is in tank and then elevage in barrels - a mix of 1/3 new, 1/3 second use and 1/3 third use. The colour is deep ruby and aromatically it enchants with pure cassis, strawberry and mediterranean garrigue. In the mouth it is full and sleek, polished and pure - full of fruit and promise. The balance and purity suggest this has a long life in front of it, for the moment though it is gorgeously rich and long.
