Tsantali Grande Reserve 2009

(89)

This is Tsantali’s top Rapsani and it is produced from grapes sourced from high altitude vineyards (over 500m). The wine spends 18 months in oak and another 18 months in bottle prior to its release. Complex nose of red and darker fruits along with tomato, herbs, spices and obvious oak. Full-bodied and international in style with rich yet juicy tannins, rich fruit and a long aftertaste. A nice combination of power and character.
