Extremely complex with fresh herbs and spices, such as cloves and black pepper, as well as a lot of ripe fruit. But always in check. Full-bodied, chewy and flavorful. Needs two or three years to soften, but should come together nicely. Try in 2021. ... More details

Similar to the pure Malbec, the 2016 Synthesis The Blend fermented in stainless steel tanks and matured in oak barrels. It is notably less oaky than the previous vintage I tasted, and it has a floral and expressive nose with berries and a little cream and spice. It's a blend of 50% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot with some grainy tannins. It's in the palate where the oak is more noticeable, with some dusty tannins and a dry, somewhat astringent finish. It might need a little more time in bottle and/or powerful food. It's a lot less oaky than in the past, but it's still a little marked by the élevage. 5,180 bottles were filled in May 2018.

Varietal: Aglianico

The Aglianico grape varietal has been grown in the Campania region for thousands of years, and is believed to have come from ancient Greece, where it was an important varietal for the production of fine traditional Grecian wines. It became enormously popular in Italy, where it thrived beneath the hot sun, and was a key varietal for the finest Roman wines, prized for its thick black skin and high acidity. Because of their thick skins, Aglianico grapes have a high tannin content. In young wines, this can prove to be a little challenging, but with a bit of aging, the tannins mellow and round to produce beautiful wines of excellent balance. Because Aglianico grapes grow most successfully in hot and dry climates, they've had plenty of success in the New World over the past few decades, where they are often used for blending.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
