Omina Romana Diana Nemorensis I 2017, Italy

This week’s #MerlotThursday is from Italy.

Dark ruby in color with medium plus intensity.

Fruity nose of blueberries, cherries, currants, light oak, spices, earth, herbs, light vegetables and dark coffee.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, plums, raspberries, wood, peppercorn, earth, tobacco leaf, spices, graphite and bitter herbs.

Medium length on the finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This Bordeaux blend from Italy is nice and easy drinking.

Tangy and spicy with a nice mouthfeel. Fruit forward with mild complexity.

Good right out of the bottle and good by itself or with food. I paired it with a gorgeous view of the lake.

I had this vintage before and this time it’s a little better. Is it the view?

A blend of 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc. Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

88 points.
