2020 Botrosecco, Le Mortelle
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon 60%, Cabernet Franc & a dash of Petit Verdot, the Botrosecco vineyard is located in the heart of the Maremma region. Warm weather, sea breezes & volcanic soils make this an ideal terroir for "Super-Tuscan" international grapes to thrive and gain complexity. 12 months' ageing in oak keep this accessible.
"What a terrific value from a hot and sunny vintage. A blend of Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, the Le Mortelle 2020 Maremma Toscana Cabernet Botrosecco is a contemporary wine with big bones and a velvety texture. With fruit from clay and sand soils, it offers sweet and rich fruit with cherry confit and blackberry syrup. There's a milky edge as well with toasted almond and spice from barrique aging." Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
