The Wine

Sete di Vino means thirst for wine and this is our take on a vinous beverage that, shall we say, hits the spot; slakes ones thirst and is a perfect companion at the dining table. Wines raison d’etre after all, is firstly to be a delicious beverage; to play a supporting role at meal time and to provide great enjoyment and stimulate conversation between your dining companions.

Of course it should do this effortlessly and without pretence and it most certainly should ably fill the void should you have a thirst for wine! And we think our 2015 Sete di Vino fits the bill here perfectly, using simpatico grape varieties that simply provide a delicious drink. In the case of the 2015, it is a blend of Primitivo and Barbera and the wine certainly proves that they are the best of friends in the bottle.

Deeply coloured in the glass the wine immediately shows aromas of ripe berry fruits. Satsuma plum and dark cherry notes are to be found here but there are the high-tones of blue fruits in the mix also - blueberry, the fragrance of mulberry and some crunchy cranberry facets. Hints of cherry danish, deep Asian spice, hoi sin, frangipani, gingerbread and marzipan all chime in for a most alluring aromatic feast.

Sitting at the lighter end of medium-bodied the wine is perfumed and lovely in the mouth with flavours of plum, cherry, blueberry and cranberry all making an appearance. The palate is dotted with spice and lifted up with perfumed notes of frangipani and jasmine, berry flan and ginger cake. Light on its feet with a sprightly line of acidity and gentle chalky tannins the 2015 Sete di Vino makes for great, fun drinking with bright, aromatic fruit and supple, succulent palate weight.
