WineAlign: 2012 LaStella Fortissimo

Fortissimo is a blend of merlot, cab sauvignon and cabernet franc with a dash of sangiovese – all rather savoury varieties which add up together rather nicely to create a quite Italian-style experience. Nicely lifted redcurrant fruit, pepper, green olive with pimento and tobacco notes.Β Also some leathery character. It’s medium-full bodied, fairly dense…Excellent length.
