Felline Salento Rosso Alberello 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Complex and nuanced on the nose with a hint of musky florality followed by some toasty soil notes, black tea, tobacco, and slightly medicinal vegetal aromas. Rather powerful but super well balanced in the mouth with great supporting acids and ripe, slightly chewy tannins covered with fresh black cherry and plum fruit that retains some of the black tea and vegetal nuance found on the nose. Fairly long on the finish, this is remarkably well balanced, and exhibits lovely freshness of flavor and complexity. there’s a little mineral note on the backend and perhaps a touch of sweet spice from wood on that long finish than ends with a fine pop of red berry fruit. This is terrific and it might even improve a bit. 89pts
