Petra Hebo Toscana 2014

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from the www.cellartrade.co.uk website for £10.It is from Tuscany in Italy but comes under the IGT designation as it does not conform to the appellation rules.It consists of a blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon,30% sangiovese and 20% merlot and was aged in oak barrels for 10 months.It is what is known as a 'super-Tuscan' The 'Hebo' name is a reference to a local ancient etruscan settlement.I started the bottle the other night with my supper of pasta bake. There is a lot of some very fresh cherry,blackcurrant and blueberry style fruit with soft tannins but more than a hint of spice,particularly on the finish. It is full bodied and well structured.It was a good match for the food
