Pizzini Lana Il Nostro Gallo 2014
Lots of savoury action here. Packed with dried Mediterranean herbs and twigs, there's a purple flower lift. More time in the glass reveals dark cherries - it was a matter of time :)
To taste, the savoury characters stand proud but the fruit seems to lack some mojo. Drying, dark cherries push through without any great excitement - standing on the edge of the dance floor seemingly reluctant to break loose if you know what I mean. Tannins are fine and soft, puckering too sapping saliva from the mouth.
A wine which needs food as a wingman. I'd have a glass with a lasagne or even a steak.
Drink now to eight years.
89/100 - Good+
