Mitolo Serpico Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (93 WA)
“Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Serpico hits the ground running with pronounced crème de cassis, blackberry pie and dark chocolate notes plus hints of bay leaves, menthol, cedar and tilled soil. Big, rich and full-bodied, the palate is a hedonist’s play-ground of voluptuous fruit and spice layers framed by plush tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long.”
Mitolo Serpico Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
“Serpico” was a famous New York police officer who wasn’t afraid to ‘work against the grain’. With Serpico, Mitolo aims to step outside its peers and redefine the accepted style of Cabernet making. Serpico is a 100% Cabernet made in the Amarone method to achieve intense aromas, and a concentrated viscous middle palate with soft and silky tannins.
