Pizzato Reserva Tannat 2005
Tannat is widely grown in South America, in Uraguay they consider it to be their national grape! Brazilian Tannat tends to be lower in tannins than the European equivalent which is why this single varietal works very well. In France it is used as a blending grape and you usually only see 3-5% in most blends.This wine hints initially at nutmeg and cinnamon, then develops more floral tones. Ripe red fruits, mid-weight with well integrated tannins, smooth and silky - this is a super and extremely interesting wine.Read more about the Brazilian wine industry in Hannibal's journal.
Editorial Reviews for Pizzato Reserva Tannat
Earthy, spicy, intense nose, a little vanilla, fine black fruit note, very focused, a little leathery, spicy dry port kind of nice, very smooth, almost soft, broaden the plate, fine tannins, crushed berry fruit leaning towards black raspberry and black berry with a hint of black currant, really lovely fruit on the backend, elegant style, finish has some nice dry tannin but this remains elegant 88pts
