Piaggia Carmignano Riserva


The 2018 Carmignano Piaggia Riserva pulls you close with a captivating display of rich exotic spices, tobacco and cherry sauce, lifted by cooling hints of mint and menthol. It’s elegant and velvety yet also full of life, casting tart cherry-berry tones across a core of stimulating acidity with notes of cinnamon and clove. There’s so much depth and energy as well, tapering off lightly structured with hints of balsam herbs, licorice and a coating of fine tannin. The 2018 can already be enjoyed today, yet another year or two of cellaring will help it to come fully into focus. 70% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot;
