Recanati - Reserve Wild Carignan 2015

Dark ruby. Dark plum and cherry, licorice, anise, bit of mossy earthiness, cured lemon peel, nutmeg, baking spice. Medium acidity, wealth of tannic structure on the palate but doesn’t drag. Holds the alcohol in check well, albeit with a little prick in the finish, and has a very long finish. Not cheap but definitely exciting.
