Tannat de Corte 2016
Out of stockTasting Note
This wine has the character of its main stock, the Tannat, with the softness and the harmony of three stocks chosen to combine it with: Marselan, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Its intense colour is equal to its aromas. The red fruits are expressed both in nose and mouth and, together with subtle tannins, they create a very gentle finish.Vintages

Tradition combines red wine with roasted red meats. Roasted lamb is this Tannat's natural partner. However, it also pairs perfectly well with cured cheeses –such as the Regiano or the Parmesan–, a coq au vin made with this Tannat's soup or a juicy, roasted lamb leg with vegetables and onions basted with this wine. Grilled mushrooms on provolone cheese and a loaf of bread would be the perfect pairing for this wine.
