Bolla Creso 2010

Bolla Creso 750ML 2010        
Sku: 51034

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Oct 2013)
Big, leathery and ripe, the 2010 Creso is a unique blend of Corvina (65%) and Cabernet. Timing of the Corvina harvest is calculated to give this component a fruity characteristic with standard sugar and phenolic ripeness. In other words, care is taken not to harvest too late. The Cabernet, on the other hand, is air-dried until the berries lose 30% of their natural water weight. When the Cabernet is pressed in November, that wine is added to the Corvina-based wine and the blend undergoes a second fermentation. The results are rich and bountiful with thick extract and dark flavors that recall prune, cassis, Christmas spice, nutmeg and old leather. Creso sees 12 months in new oak and Id give it a year or two for better integration. Drink 2014-2020.
 Wine Enthusiast 91 points (Nov 2013)
Made from 65% Corvina and 35% partially dried Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, this structured and gripping wine shows black fruit, red currant, spice and leather aromas. The palate delivers a ripe plum core framed by big, velvety tannins and accents of chocolate, licorice and black pepper. Age this for another three to five years for additional complexities to develop.
