Reviews of purchase Maculan, "Brentino", Breganze DOC, 2016
Wine of intense ruby color with garnet reflections.
Taste wine, dry, full-bodied, balanced and smooth, filled with shades of black currants and ripe fruit, tobacco and vanilla notes. The finish is long and intense.
In the bright and complex bouquet of wine clearly felt fruit and berry flavors combined with woody tones and dry grass.
The wine goes well with red meat, grilled, hot, pasta with meat sauce wild animals.
