Winery Tasting Notes
The mc² is an exceptional alliance that goes so incredibly well with any food.
The Cabernet Sauvignon gives structure to the wine, letting all the flavours fall into alignment. It allows the wine to be soft and velvety with great tannins that give the illusion of being big and strong yet are in fact quite delicate.
The Merlot gives softness and fruitiness reminiscent of fresh berries, as well as displaying a juiciness and fleshiness with bursts of ripe red fruit and fresh strawberry jam.
Finally, the Cabernet Franc contributes a delicate spiciness of cloves and thyme, continuing with hints of peppermint and cedar box undertones.
Vintage 2010 was a superb season which shows in the strong vibrant purple colour, balanced flavours and textures, and long lingering finish.
Creamy mushroom risotto or braised chicken thigh, and for dessert poached pear, in mc² of course, with shaved Regiano Parmagana.
Enjoy this wine from now for up to 10 years.
