Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Tenuta di Salviano Turlo 2014
The 2014 growing season started with a winter that received higher than average temperatures and rainfall. Rainfall continued during flowering in the Spring and was setback by 10 ten days compared to normal growing conditions. In mid-June, temperatures dropped and rain was overly plentiful, by then already exceeding the annual average. The second half of the growing season was characterized by lower-than-average temperatures, which only became more standard during the second half of September and beginning of October. The harvest was therefore delayed until the beginning of October in order to achieve ideal ripeness. Overall, the 2014 season brought very good acidity to the grapes, while also preserving freshness and aromas in the final wines.
Rich pomegranate in color, the wine shows complex, intense ripe fruit aromas. This full-bodied wine is the Umbrian answer to the Super Tuscans.
Lago di Corbara reds benefit from straightforward food pairings – kale soup, short ribs, and wood-fired sausages. A robust pasta al ragù is a comforting pairing as is a polenta dish with any manner of slowly-braised red meat or fowl.
