Bertinga Punta di Adine 2016
"The aromas to this small-production, single-vineyard wine are marvelous, changing all the time from crushed berries and flowers to black truffles and fresh mushrooms. Full body and polished and chewy tannins. It’s tight and shows excellence. Long and flavorful finish. Needs two or three years to come completely together and soften. Try after 2021." James Suckling 95 points Drink 2022-30
A pure expression of Sangiovese, the Bertinga 2016 Punta di Adine shows dark fruit, plum and dusty earth or toasted nuts with lots of density and dark saturation. There is a pretty earthy quality to this wine that ultimately distinguishes it in a crowd. Crushed flower, sweet spice, grilled herb and dusty chocolate appear at the back. Keep the wine cellared until your next post-pandemic party of T-bones and mushrooms on the grill.
