Delicious Dogarina Carménère DOC Piave 2020
60 in stock
Lush full-bodied Italian red, hand harvested at the single vineyard Dogarina in the Veneto region of Italy.
A rare find old world Carménère from Europe. Antique vines, originally French, were mistaken for Cabernet Franc until 2008, the year in which it was correctly identified as Carmenère and assigned a DOC Piave designation.
A smooth, herbacious red, full of fruit and intense flavour with a herbacious nose. There are notes of forrest floor, hay and reed as well as peppery spice on the palate with a discernable minerality and a delicate after-taste of liquorice.
On the palate, notes of pickling spices, cedar, pepper, and cranberry-tomato chutney with a silky, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a smooth, tangy long lasting finish with an elegant tannic structure.
A truly superb red that will go great with a broad range of meat dishes and especially lamb. Wonderful to drink on it’s own or with cheese.
