La Spinetta Garetti 2006

La Spinetta Garetti 2006

Sometimes wines fill you with happiness as they tell you stories of their origin and take you to places when you are in the comfort of your own living room. My wife and I travelled to Italy a while ago and this wine reminded me of everything we loved about the country. This wine has a beautiful aroma of crushed fresh roses in a clay pot followed by spicy sour blackberries but it the serious structure that demands your attention.  The balance between the monumental tannins, bright acidity and a pretty flavour profile leave me feeling joyful. The wine is still lock up tight so leave this alone unless you love rolling around in the mud with a body builder. This is the sort of wine you should serve to someone that has become disillusioned with the fruit bombs that were so popular a few years ago.
