Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% of the wine is aged in barrique (1/3 of which is new) for 12 months and 50% is aged in stainless steel tanks. Although the grape varietals are French, Fausto Maculan assures us that the wine is quintessentially Italian. Deep ruby-red with garnet reflections, Brentino has a complex bouquet of ripe berry fruit, hay, licorice and wood. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and dry with perfectly balanced acidity. Recommended with hearty pasta dishes, roasted and grilled meats.
“An elegant, Bordeaux-styled red offering hints of licorice, black and red currants, spice box, and cedar. This medium-bodied, tasty, soft, authentic tasting red exhibits plenty of character as well as style."" The Wine Advocate

"Currant and berry aromas with an oaky note following through to a medium-bodied palate, with slightly angular tannins and a firm, medium finish." The Wine Spectator
