Hither & Yon McLaren Vale Montepulciano 2022
Prunes, kirsch, bramble, stewed black plums and black cherry. Seems like that the crostata alla frutta nera (black fruit tart) that my grandmother used to make is finally back. Add some blue violets on the table, and I’m ready for my merenda (tea break). As inky as you can possibly imagine, the young and exuberant tannins are embracing the palate. It’s an honest wine, unpretentious like a good Italian farmer would be.
