Åsa’s wine of the month
Riserva Castel Sant´Elena

A wine for the ”goderecci”: Riserva Castel Sant’Elena. In other words, a wine for those of you who seek pleasure (which is what goderecci means in Italian), and as often when you are looking for some real pleasure it’s not exactly cheap. It comes from old vines of merlot and cabernet sauvignon in Umbria, not far from Perugia. Open the wine and decant it at least half an hour before serving to let the aromas develop – red fruit, as black currants and other dark fruit will then reach your nose when you dip it in the glass. In the mouth it is warm with a touch of tannin and a bit of ripe, jammy flavours. It is a Riserva 2007 and it wouldn’t hurt to keep it another few years to let the tannins round off a bit. Around 30 euro.
