Maculan Brentino 2012
55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. Recommended with roasted and grilled meats, as well as hearty winter stews or pastas.
Deep ruby-red with garnet hues, the Brentino offers seductive aromas of blackberries and dark cherries, along with hints of cedar and forest due to the year spent aging in French barriques. On the palate, the wine is dry, full bodied, and harmoniously balanced with a firm-tannic structure and a persistent finish. Recommended with roasted or grilled meat dishes like pancetta-wrapped beef tenderloin or with a hearty dish like spicy sausage ragu served over creamy polenta.
