    Professional Ratings: 88 The Wine Advocate

    Region: Italy

    Varietal: Bordeaux Red Blends

    Item no. 88750

    Winemaker's Notes:

    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.
