Prelius - Prile 2015
The label represents the essence of the ancient coastal lake of Prelius, what now is known as the Maremma Toscana around Grosetto. The lake has slowly disappeared also due to the drainage of the 30s and now the only fluid that’s left is the excellent winemaking tradition of the region. The vineyards of Prelius are located on a hilltop along the shores of the ancient lake, 5 miles from the sea facing the majestic Tuscan Archipelago.
Varietal Composition: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon - 40% Sangiovese - 20% Merlot
Color: Intense red ruby with purplish highlights.
Perfume: Intense fruity hits of plump, black cherries and wild blackberry jam. These perfumes are well mixed with sweet spices, aromas, and balsamic nuances.
Flavor: Juicy and powerful mouth with a thick texture and lush aftertaste, long and persistent.
Antonio Galloni: 92 Points
The 2015 Prile is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Merlot. It is also one of the finer wines I have tasted from Volpaia's Prelius estate. Dark and beautifully resonant on the palate, the 2015 opens up nicely with a bit of time in the glass, revealing hints of black cherry, chocolate, licorice and espresso. Drink it over the next decade.
