2020 Graciano Terra Alta Vineyard
The structure of the palate is where this Graciano really sings. The higher (15% abv) alcohol is so well-balanced alongside the concentrated fruits (wild strawberry, rhubarb, red plum, kirsch, and the elevated acidity adds a nervy tension and keeps life and vivacity through the length. Well-integrated oak adds complementary tones of cedar, vanilla and chocolate. The finish is a solid medium in length—and the wine so delicious, it begs another sip.
