Pravis "Fratagranda" Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT 2009
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, about 1/3rd Merlot then Cabernet Franc. Tank ferment, aged 2 years in barrique then extended bottle time before release. Pravis is at the base of the Dolomites, Trentino, northern Italy. Hard to differentiate from high quality, mature Bordeaux. Savory wine, with dried red cherries and red currants, cola, tobacco and truffle smells and flavors. Has a softness that comes from maturity. Cool wine.
