The 2018 Cirò Riserva Duca Sanfelice shows a dark and brooding character, as crushed ashen stone and hints of animal musk give way to a mix of black currant and plum. Silky textures soothe, as a cool-toned display of mineral-tinged wild berries cascades across a core of zesty acidity, leaving a coating of sweet tannin in their wake. Notes of licorice and sage linger through the lightly structured finale, as this tapers off surprisingly fresh and floral. The Duca Sanfelice is already showing quite well, yet I recommend a short decanting to help open up its aromatic profile. ... More details

Winery
Duca San Felice Riserva offers rich aromas of Mediterranean fruits such as figs and dates, sour cherry and tobacco, followed by hints of chocolate. Spicy flavors come through on the palate and balanced tannins lend potential for aging. Full-bodied and well structured, Duca San Felice is best enjoyed with game, roasted meats, pot roast, dishes with spicy sauces, veal and aged cheese.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
