Grape: Aglianico and Piedirosso
Category: Red Wine
Location: LCBO Vintages
Format: 750 mL
Alcohol: 13.5% Alcohol/Vol.
A delicious wine that is fresh, smooth with lots of fruits & spiciness. Score: 95/100.
Tasting Note: Medium ruby in colour with good acidity, medium intense nose, soft tannin & a long length on the finish. This wine features: Blackberry, cherry, raspberry, strawberry, aged balsamic, licorice, cinnamon, Allspice & vanilla.
Interesting Point: “The name Equinox, comes from the Latin aequa-nox which literally means equal night, as this is one of the two solely days in which night and day have the same length. EQUINOX recalls the period of harvest of this wine, when summer ends letting autumn taking its course. The grapes were harvested during the Fall Equinox on 21 September 2017.
Although I enjoyed this wine in a variety of wine glasses, the Sangiovese/Riesling glassware won out.
Pairings: Drink this now or in next 5-7 years on its own or pair it with Mussels Marinara with Linguine
My Opinion: Highly Recommended
