Tenuta Sant'Antonio di Famiglia Castagnedi, Scaia Torre Mellotti Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 IGT Veneto

16

Full bottle 1,509 g. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% of which was vinified fresh and 50% was dried passito before fermenting it. 
Jam and chocolate. Like hot chocolate with lovage and thyme. Quite distinctive. If you'd told me that this wine contained actual (dark) chocolate, I would have believed you. Can't be faulted for drama and flair. Tannins are a bit tough (like stewing steak that hasn't been stewed) and there is night-club lack of light to the wine that makes it very particular. Ambitious and self-conscious; a wine that will appeal to a certain palate. (TC)
