Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc form the base of the 2015 Bolgheri Rosso from Podere Prospero. The wine is dark and brooding in appearance with blackish-garnet highlights. On the nose, it delivers heavier tones of scorched earth and campfire ash at the back of plum, black prune and blackberry marmalade. You taste the powerful fruit of this warm vintage, without the sweet softness. Indeed, the wine tastes dry and slightly astringent with a firm tannic backbone.
