Uccelliera Rapace 2018
The Uccelliera 2018 Rapace (a blend of 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a lean, medium-bodied red. This is an easy-drinking blend with an especially food-friendly taste profile. The 2018 vintage is on the thinner side, but this wine will appeal to those who appreciate more brightness and aromatic lift. The 14.5% alcohol content pushes back a bit, but the wine is accessible nonetheless.
This is juicy, sporting cherry, plum, earth and menthol flavors. Loses a little steam on the finish, where light tannins prevail. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now.
