IGT Daunia

TASTING NOTE: Tenuta Coppadoro’s 2005 Cotinone is a blend of equal parts Aglianico, Montepulciano and Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak. It is a plump, powerful wine endowed with generous dark fruit, licorice, sweet toasted oak and earthiness. It offers outstanding length, finessed tannins and a fresh, vibrant personality that leads to me to think it will drink well to age 12 or so. Score – 90.
