Castello di Monterinaldi "Purple Turtle" 2018 cod MRN-W3-2018
Intense ruby red color, by the nose it shows a deep sensation of small black fruits with notes of wild blackberry and blueberry. It has a medium body, it’s enveloping and the pleasant softness of the Merlot is well balanced by the typical acidity of Sangiovese. Silky tannins are very well integrated. Nice sensations of ripe fruit and slight memories of wet soil. Serve at room temperature with chicken or young/medium aged cheeses, but even on its own as an aperitif.
