Cinque 2015, IGT
Grape variety: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Description: The 2015 Cinque is a blend of 50/50 Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that both reached perfect ripeness level that year. Picked at low yields (34-40 hectoliters per hectare) in the third week of September and the first week of october, this Mendrisiotto Bordeax blend offer a generously ripe, precise, refined and elegant bouquet of red fruits and milled stony notes. Silky textured and super elegant on the palate, this is a finessed and intense, very persistent red with fine tannins ad delicate acidity. The finish is stimulatingly fine and salty as well as concentrated and long in its ripe and sweet fruits flavors. Doubtlessly an extraordinary Bordeaux blend from the Ticino. (Robert Parker)
