Marcello Pelleriti Cuvee Especial 2012 75cl

Marcello Pelleriti is one of Argentina's finest winemakers, in fact he is the only one to date to have received a 100 point rating from Robert Parker. This is a blend he made as a one off, and it's fabulous!

This is a blend he produced for Gaucho Restaurants so it's composition is secret and it isn't even on his website. We've been offered some at a good price and as it's excellent wine we've bought some. In Pomerol Marcelo works mainly with Merlot and indeed at the vineyards of Chateau La Violette where he scored 100 points from Parker for the 2010, they grow only Merlot. I suspect this wine is Merlot based with some Malbec and Cabernet Franc but I don't know for sure!

It's very deep ruby in colour with a nose of black cherry and coffee. It has mid weight on the palate with soft natural acidity. It is incredibly smooth, very natural in style. Flavours of coffee, black cherry and dark chocolate with a long lingering finish.
