2019 Casa Comerci 'a Batia' Magliocco Canino
100% Magiolocco Canino from the oldest vineyard on the Comerci estate, dating back over 50 years and extremely low-yielding. The fruit is destemmed and softly pressed before fermented on its native yeasts. The skins stay in contact with the juice for 50 days via the submerged cap method and the wine ages for a year in stainless steel before bottling. Only 1800 bottles are made!
This is Casa Comerci's top wine, from its oldest vineyard and its best selection of fruit. This, combined with the long maceration, provides a singularly intense yet elegant wine. Super complex both on the nose and in the mouth, with aromas of ripe red cherries and plums, cracked pepper and spices, sweet licorice and violets. Medium-full bodied, intense and juicy with flavors of sweet cherry, menthol, smoke and spices. The abundant acidity keeps everything fresh on the long, grippy finish. One of the best wines from the varietal in the entire world, and one that any lover of red wines should try.
