Tenuta Grillo, Pecoranera Nera VDT 2004

21.99

Pecoranera or 'Black Sheep' comes from the Tenuta Grillo Estate in Monferrato, Piemonte. It's a fully organic blend of Friesa, Dolcetto, Barbera and Merlot, with a long maceration on skins, natural yeast ferment, extremely limited use of sulphur, extended ageing in large barrels (so that oak does not dominate) and bottled without filtration. The wine is inky black, and funky at first sniff, as it’s been in a bottle for over a decade - so decant it or allow it to breathe until its true aromas of damsons, forest fruits, wild herbs, mushrooms and liquorice come to the fore. Chunky as well as funky, it deserves some top quality, well hung, game.
