Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Tried ‘14 & ‘15 together. The name of the estate comes from "Ca' Pazzo", shown on ancient maps. Estate covers an area of 190 hectares, 54 which are vineyards, 4 are olive groves, 87 which are wooded and 45 are planted with new vines. Deep Ruby with a berry fruit aromas blossom and smoke, aged for 2 years on oak. On the palate cherry & strawberry flavors, with leather, cacao and tobacco notes. Lively acidity, fine approachable tannins, long ending with spicy oak finish.

Licorice, tar, orange peel, black olive, dried herbs, soft tannins and balancing acid. Very nice. Held up in the bottle for 4-days.

Buena evolución desde la ultima botella que tome en el 2020. Necesita aire, 2h y abre bien.

Just had a 2014. Full bodied, great taste on the tongue and a perfect way to start a new year.

Nariz: cereza, ciruela, rosas secas, tierra y piedra

Boca: Tanino M+, Acidez M, Alcohol M. Todavía un poco astringente.

Best BdM value. Took an hour to open up. Cherries bouquet, a bite of tannins. Good with barbecue food!
