Cameron Douglas, The Shout, 2017
JK.14 Piave Malanotte 2011 Treviso, Italy – From the Raboso grape this wine presents an intriguing bouquet of red fruits – from blackberry to keri-berry, dark plum and black currant; other aromas include wood spice, toast, tar, brown sugar and smoke. On the palate – dry, firm, plenty of tannins engage and challenge the senses and in typical Italian fashion dominate and demand food; plenty of acidity then fruit flavours that match the nose. Weighty and quite meaty, with a lengthy and fairly concentrated finish. Decant for service please – drinking best from now and through 2030.
A balanced and well-structured wine with a fragrant, intense bouquet with notes of jasmine and magnolia. It is fresh, zesty and harmonious on the palate, very well-balanced and has a good, persistent aroma.
