2016 Yelland and Papps Sete Di Vino

I’ve mentioned it before but you’re excused for forgetting what ‘Sete Di Vino’ means.  A friendly and apt reminder; ‘thirst for wine’ (of which I always seem to have for the Y&P wines).

Marginally more Primitivo (Zinfandel) than Barbera, both varieties giving this wine some lovely juicy, scrumptious appeal.

Even though it is reasonably deep in colour, the nose is quite fresh, lively and inviting (I know what you’re thinking but it’s true).  There’s no point in mentioning the aromas because they are exactly the same on the palate…for me anyway.

Red fruits courtesy of the Primitivo shine here but there is, sort of, a subtle spiciness too.  There’s a plushness and savouriness on the mid palate. I’m getting plums and ripe cherries (nice work Barbera, nice work indeed) and something like cranberry vivaciousness.

I was thinking it was a lighter bodied wine but it seems to pick itself up to more of a delicate medium bodied beauty.  I felt I had to keep going back to it to check this particular facet of the wine…just to be sure of course.

It always brings a smile to my face when this wine turns up at my doorstep.  Love it!
