Edi Kante, Cabernet-Merlot- Terrano, Carso NV
Sweet, brambly, curranty fruit on the nose, even a hint of kiwi. The palate mirrors the nose, with more intensity (even that kiwi note). Dry, lots of flavour, but medium bodied, with extremely lively acidity, fresh fruit and very firm, raspy tannins. Needs food in order to glug. 16.5/20pts (88/100pts)
