Tenuta Di Salviano Turlo Lago di Corbara DOC 2013 Umbria Italy

✌️ Ultimate Wine Challenge 91 Pts  Excellent, Highly Recommended
"Anise, tobacco, smoky meat and scorched earth immediately jump to mind on the assertive nose of this wine. An exhilaratingly bold palate hold flavors of black licorice, venison, blackberries, and leather. Structured tannins round out this audacious wine
90 Pts JS "This has cherries with pine needle and an earthy background. Showing delicate fruit and a walnut like finish"
 The Turlo vineyards are located on the hills of Lake Corbara’s northern bank, at 250-380 meters in elevation. The generally southern exposure varies by vineyard site. The soil is rich in red clay, tufa (a limestone common to central Italy) and small pebbles. The grapes are harvested by hand at optimum ripeness to ensure a rich, concentrated finished wine. Each grape variety is fermented separately in small, temperature-controlled steel tanks.
A Super Umbrian” blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. 
Titignano Castle was built by Farolf of the Montemarte in 937 B.C.  Cuverie and ageing cellars have been dug out of the tufa soils beneath the castle.  
Pair with hard cheeses, grilled or braised meats, risotto ❣️
