La Stella 2016 Fortissimo

Overall the wine has fantastic layers of fruit and savoury flavours. Bing cherry mingles with red and black cherry fruit. Grilled aromatic herbs meet cured tobacco leaves. The Palate is layered and while is still young and morphed into itself, it still offers plenty of pleasure in youth. One built for early drinking or cellaring with a medium+ aging curve ahead. Best pairings are veal osso bucco or tuscan roast lamb with a rosemary crust.
