Astrale, was born in 2011, and proposes a new wine concept, without boundaries, the result of a care of detail, but also of the land and its products that are an expression of italianness. An authentic Italian blend made from some of the most recognized Italian grapes and wine regions.
A non vintage blend of 40% Primitivo, 30% Sangiovese, 15% Montepulciano, 15% Nero d’Avola; the nose unravels fruity aromas of forest fruit and dried plums together with black pepper and coffee. Round, warm and full body supported by velvety tannins, bringing together different layers of flavours. This is the verified, bottle stickered blend that was rated 97 Points by Luca Maroni; Annuario Dei Migliori Vini Italiani 2021 (Best Italian Wines Annual)
Medium to deep red colour with a good tinge of purple and an intriguing bouquet of cherry conserve, dried flowers and dried herbs, violets and thyme to the forefront. The wine has superb depth of fruit, lovely freshness and brightness, that thyme-like, mixed dried-herb flavour chiming in strongly on the palate. The succulent fruit sweetness of very ripe (but not overripe) fruit is disarming: it has a black cherry bonbon, cherry eau de vie aspect to it which is utterly delicious. (Primitivo 40%, sangiovese 30%, montepulciano 15%, nero d'avola 15%. The primitivo is partially air-dried). Date Tasted: June 2021; Drink: 2021 to 2027; Price: $30.00; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 92 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
