Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Intense ruby red in color and extremely concentrated, Carmione offers a powerful bouquet of sweet wild berries, cedar, licorice and spices. This is a full-bodied, rich, well structured wine with jammy fruit, fine tannins and a persistent finish.

Powerful and complex, Carmione is excellent with grilled steak, game, ribs and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The estate’s 2004 Carmione is a blend of 60% Cabernet (Sauvignon and Franc) and 40% Merlot. This rich, sumptuous red is packed with sweet dark fruit supported by plenty of structure. It shut down quickly in the glass and will require some patience, but offers outstanding potential. It is a terrific effort from Pratesi. Anticipated maturity. 2009-2019."

I had never tasted Carmione wines which are a traditional blend of grapes. Quite good especially for the price and vintage.
