Michelini Brothers Calcareo Malbec 2013
Another bold beauty from the Super Uco team, the Michelini Brothers in fine fettle. The clues are in the name – calcareous and granitic soils. The actual influence of these elements in the soils is much debated, but we are believers; how can it be coincidence with these amazing, sensitive mineral and stony notes in the wine’s aroma? Super Uco is modelled on Stonehenge of all places – a circular vineyard maximises the micro-climate and mystical influences…ooooh spooky.
A geeky and beautiful nose of dark chocolate and dried fruits, reminiscent Alicante Bouschet; pepper and more power comes through with air. The palate is inky and dark with an uncompromising sweet and sour (lots of sour!) spine.
