Pizzato Red Blend Concentus 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Merlot in FO, tannat in FO, Cabernet Sauvignon AO Cedary, sweet spices, faintly herbal. Nice tobacco and cigar box notes, pretty rich and frankly a bit fruity but the oak and earthy base here makes this quite complex and balanced, hint of tomato leaf, more herbal, fresh herbs, sage with time, lovey huckleberry and lighter black currant fruit on the backend, layered and evolving on the back end, this is for and dry, with wood tannin obvious under the fruit but the fruit is fine and fresh and shows aromatic complexity in the mouth, finish could be longer but that should come with time, 91pts

PIZZATO Vinhas e Vinhos is the legacy of a 100+ year-old grape growing in Brazil. Located at the Vale dos Vinhedos, Bento Gonçalves, in the state of Rio Grande do Sol, southern Brazil, PIZZATO is owned by the Plínio Pizzato family. Plínio Pizzato is the grandson of Antonio Pizzato, an Italian immigrant who came to Bento Gonçalves in 1875 from the Veneto region of Italy and brought with him the proud winegrowing tradition. With a solid experience in grape-growing, the family established the winery  in 1999 with the objective of making world class estate grown and bottled wines from their own vineyards. Since its first ever made wine, a very successful Merlot that helped to fix this red varietal as the one with the best results in Brazil, the company is dedicated to make exclusively premium fine wines under its 2 brands, PIZZATO and FAUSTO. The family owns 45 hectares (111 acres) of prime vineyards located in two regions, both within the so-called Serra Gaúcha region: Ø  Vale dos Vinhedos, Bento Gonçalves, the first geographical indication (GI) in Brazil ever, now a D.O. (Santa Lucia vineyard, PIZZATO brand) Ø  Doutor Fausto de Castro, Dois Lajeados (Dr Fausto vineyard, FAUSTO brand) The family uses both traditional principals and modern day technology is its efforts to make world class and top quality wines with well defined personalities. The wines from both areas, Vale dos Vinhedos and Doutor Fausto, are 100% made by Pizzato family winegrowers. Read less
