2016 Nittardi Nectar Dei 1500ml
Deep red with hints of purple color. On the nose ripe notes of cassis, blackberries and raspberry combined with tobacco and leather. Nicely concentrated with lush, rounded tannins and elegant notes as black cherries and licorice on the palate. Long and rich fi nish where the complexity of the wine shines through. Nectar Dei 2014 has a very good ageing potential.
WA 93: I published my review of the 2017 vintage of this "Nectar of the Gods" a little while back and am now reaching back to 2016 to keep the databased updated. The Nittardi 2016 Maremma Toscana Nectar Dei is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Syrah with 5,646 bottles produced. This is a thickly extracted and rich red wine with black fruit, plum, spice, leather and sweet spice or toast. It is a medium to full-bodied red that can stand up to roast pork or grilled steak.
