Lidio Carraro wines tasted May 2012

2. Lidio Carraro Merlot Grande Vindima (2005)

« Prev Next » 2 of 12
14.2% ABV Big tobacco note on opening, chocolate, cocoa, intense, a little bit of char, a little licorice, baked cookies, a hint of chips ahoy, red plum, black berry, black currant, fairly rich and fairly smooth but not too smooth nor sticky matte rich, just super merlot, great elegance, depth for fruit, taut and lively on the palate, as big as I would want, lovely red fruit, fine dusty tannins, drive the finish, finesse and elegance, this really has poise, really archetypal merlot if you're talking about the grape and not winemaking, shows the contest hint of heat perhaps but returns with. Long wild plum skin finish 92pts
