The 2015 Col d'Orcia Nearco is an intense ruby red with brilliant violet hues. The nose is also intense and fragrant, red fruits aromas, blackberry and plum combined with intense and spicy notes. Great structure, balanced and pleasant. Its soft and ripe tannins lead to lasting aftertaste.
A wine with dried violets, burnt blackberry essence, charcoal, treacle, resin and baking spices. Full body, very chewy tannins and a long, very decadent finish. Best in a long time. It needs time though. Drink in 2023.
The core of black cherry, blackberry, black currant and violet flavors is shaded by vanilla and toasty oak notes. Balanced and refined, with a light layer of dusty tannins on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
The 2015 Sant'Antimo Nearco is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Some 25,000 bottles were made. This is a near term and approachable Tuscan red to pair with grilled Italian sausages with onions and green bell peppers. The wine offers loads of succulent softness with medium to full-bodied structure to hold it all together. I'm not sure which grape plays a dominant role, but to my palate I taste the Cabernet Sauvignon with the greatest clarity. Dark fruit is followed by grilled rosemary and scorched earth. The warm vintage is nicely expressed here. This is a good value.
