    A winescout

    Usually one tends to associates the word Habemus to a religious periodical event. But for a vagrant slave of Roma as myself, the word becomes the name, and the name becomes the gift of terrestrial proprieties. Habemus with the Mediterranean choice of indigenous grapes; in a terroir such as Tuscia, Allows Marco Casolanetti to reduce the yield of fruit per stomp to 450gr the extracted nectar of that choice becomes a complex structured wine to be embraced by the few. Reason being that a difference of some other well known international Gran Crue, the total yearly output of Habemus etichetta Bianca are 8,000 bottles. PS. You should drink a bottle of this wine at least once in this Cosmic life.

    San Giovenale farm in the town of Blera, south of Vetralla in the Viterbo area. Habemus 2015 blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignano and Tempranillo. 15% alcohol in a very consistent, almost viscous wine. Intense nose, full of scents, berries, black cherry, cherry, pepper, coffee, chocolate, licorice. Robust, freshness, tannins and sapidity that are incorporated perfectly and slide on the taste buds which is a pleasure. 20/30 seconds of persistence

    Limpid with a deep ruby color. Consistent, with an intense and quite varied aroma. Wood plays a specific role, giving hints of coffee, cocoa, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, which blend with vegetal notes of undergrowth, mushrooms and peppers and red fruit. On the palate it is dry, full-bodied, with light tannins, a notable acid vein and medium sapidity. Fruity in the mouth of plum, currant and raspberry. Very persistent finish. Balanced, fine, elegant. It can age for many years.
