Back with a Bang Antonutti Novello 2009
November 9, 2009
It’s back an already it looks like being as big a hit this year as it was last year. Antonutti’s 2009 Novello, the first glimpse of how the 2009 vintage was in Italy. Vino Novello is traditionally released on the 6th of November, and we received delivery of our shipment of this great wine on that day. Vino Novello is the first pressing of this years vintage, similiar in idea to Beaujoulais Noveau, as such it is very fresh and fruity red wine. It works wonderously well when chilled, this is a wine well worth a try on these dark cold and wet winter nights, it will remind you of lovely summers evenings.
Antonutti’s vino Novello comes from the Fruili Region in North Eastern Italy, the wine itself is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot grown in Antonutti’s own vineyards. The bouquet of this wine is fresh with intense cherry notes complimented by ripe raspberry and strawberry nuances. on the palate it has a soft smooth mouth feel with repeated cherry and strawberry notes.
Regular Price €12.95 but you can buy two bottles for €20 at present.
