“Viburno”, the flagship wine of the Poderi Crisci Estate label is a fine blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Montepulciano. Traditionally the fruit is harvested from our Northern Merlot block, just above the “House Block” and our Southern Merlot both of which were tasting fantastic at time of harvest. The Cabernet Franc, picked from a parcel at the top of the vineyard offers a beautiful fragrant aspect and the Montepulciano delivers a fine spice and silken tannins.
A balanced nose of red plum and blackcurrants with good depth. The Cabernet Franc showing much stronger than in previous vintages, giving the nose strong Bordelais characteristics.
Full bodied and ripe, again a strong Cabernet Franc flavour with red and black fruit, cherries and cherry stone, then soft ripe tannins of good persistence giving this wine real focus. A sleeper.
