From the bottle:
"Memoro Italia", Latin for Remember Italy, was born as a cuvee wine from our family's Italian pride and created as a tribute to our country's exceptional wine-making legacy and love of life.
Plenty of rich black-cherry flavour, with coffee and tobacco on the nose and hints of dried figs and prunes. Reminiscent of Port, but with a dry, complex palate supported by elegant structure and perfectly integrated tannins, the powerful ripe fruit is delightfully balanced. Enjoy at 18C with red meats, richly-flavoured foods and strong cheeses.
The Piccini Memoro Rosso begins with a pleasant and inviting nose of dark fruit, figs and vanilla plus a little oak and spice. Tasting the wine reveals tons of smooth, sweet dark fruit including notes of prunes and raisins. Vanilla and oak continue to be present along with touches of leather. The fruit turns more towards cherry Sweet Tarts on the satisfying finish. A unique and crowd-pleasing blend that is a great choice for fans of sweeter red wines!
