Professional Ratings: 88 The Wine Advocate
Varietal: Bordeaux Red Blends
Item no. 88750
A blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep ruby-red with garnet reflections, Brentino has a complex bouquet of ripe berry fruit, hay, licorice and wood. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and dry with perfectly balanced acidity. Recommended with hearty pasta dishes, roasted and grilled meats.
Although earlier vintages of this cuvee revealed an excessive vegetal character, the 2004 Brentino (a stainless steel and French oak barrel-aged blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon) is an elegant, Bordeaux-styled red offering hints of licorice, black and red currants, spice box, and cedar. This medium-bodied, tasty, soft, authentic tasting red exhibits plenty of character as well as style. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
