AB SKU 756070

2009 La Parrina 'Muraccio'

Price: $25

Availability: J. Webb Wine Merchant. Limited availability, 20,000 bottles produced

Assessed by: Keith Robinson

Tasted: October 2014

Product Details: Parrina, Tuscany, Italy 14% ABV, Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon

Parrina is a tiny appellation on the coast of southern Tuscany. The farm La Parrina is the largest producer of wine in Parrina. La Parrina also produces cheese, olive oils, almonds, figs, some grains, fruit and vegetables. 'Muraccio' is the name of the vineyard.

The tasting: Dark plummy nose with intense blackberries. Full bodied. Round on palate and plush texture. Very drinkable, good glug.

Drink now.

Food pairing: Cold cuts. Older hard cheeses.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
