Cresti Fattoria Fontalpino Do Ut Des Rosso 2016

Critical Acclaim: 95 pts James Suckling; 94 pts Wine Spectator; 94 pts Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. 

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: Deep ruby color, with delicate and persistent fruit aromas of blackberry, blueberry, and plum as well as sweet spices. A powerful aromatic finish. The name Do ut Des means “I give so that you may give.”

The fruit here really takes your breath away with its intensity, as well as purity. Blackberry crumble, pressed violets, ink, iodine, charcoal, vanilla and resin. It’s the polish of the tannins that really makes this wine, carrying itself effortlessly over a shimmer of electric acidity to the long finish. Drink in 2023. Made from organically grown grapes.”- James Suckling. 

The 2016 Do Ut Des (a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits a generous and expansive personality that hits the palate like a warm embrace from a favorite friend. This is a succulent and smooth red wine with thick layers of bold cherry, dried blackberry, leather, rose hip and scorched earth. In the mouth, the wine proceeds with medium- to full-bodied texture and elegantly contoured fruit flavors.”- Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. 

Varietal: Sangiovese.
