Bramaterra 2016 Cascina Cottignano Colombera & Garella
From porphyry sands of volcanic origin, this Bramaterra strikes home with its elegance, subtle perfume and soft mineral nose. A mass of fine red berries, cherries and plums, with a good tannic note towards the end, establishing firmness and persistence. It offers a lot of complexity, without being “difficult” - on the contrary: it quickly becomes irresistible and one sip pulls the next. It is a perfect companion for that special moment of relaxation, on its own or accompanied by classic pasta and risotto, especially with mushrooms and rich meat dishes. Suitable for further ageing.
