Ratings on Delectable

Jamie Lauder

2015 vintage. 90% Sangiovese with 10% Merlot. This is owned by Felsina since 1981. All hand harvested. Very muted nose at first but opened up after a few minutes. Rich ruby red colour with black fruit, leather, tea and perfumed nose. Medium bodied, nice acidity with flavours of red/tart/Rainer cherries and earthiness. The bit of Merlot adds a softness to this wine. It is very crushable and would pair amazingly with duck.

This is 2015. A gift from Pendergast via Gasbarro. Same rating as 2010. Pleasantly drinkable but not remarkable.

Great every day wine. Bought a case. Very subtle smell, but fulfilling taste. Light, flavorful, and easy to drink.

Great for the price. Well rounded and balanced but lacking a little depth
