Maculan:
For three generations the Maculan family has been selecting and vinifying the best grapes in Breganze, an enchanting village, set like a small jewel at the foot of the Alps in the Veneto region. The high plains of Asiago offer natural protection and create an extremely mild climate that favors the cultivation of vines and olives.

For three generations the Maculan family has been selecting and vinifying the best grapes in Breganze, an enchanting village, set like a small jewel at the foot of the Alps in the Veneto region. The high plains of Asiago offer natural protection and create an extremely mild climate that favors the cultivation of vines and olives. It isn't a coincidence that in the 500s, the Venetian nobility already preferred to spend their summers in this area, sojourning in the splendid villas perfectly designed by the great architect, Andrea Palladio.

This is a bit of a two-trick pony on the nose, though the two tricks (jammy black raspberry brownies and dried herbs) are both classic and in fine contrast. Smooth, very decidedly middle weight, bright and juicy in the mouth, this is a wine typical of another time. It’s decidedly clean with lovely strawberry, cherry and red plum fruits, framed with gentle, astringent tannins and supported by nervy acidity. On the finish this turns a touch earthy and shows a nice tactile weight with powder tannins. Not terribly long though it exhibits lovely purity, all wild berry fruit and gently faded wood spice. Thoroughly engaging wine. 87pts

Maculans 2008 Brentino is 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon aged partly in tank and partly in oak. There is plenty of beautifully articulated dark fruit, along with suggestions of violets, leather and licorice. The Brentino is an elegant, graceful red perfect for enjoying over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015.
