Mitolo Serpico Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

I watched ‘Scarface’ again recently. Hadn’t seen it for years. Incredible performance by Al Pacino.

Plenty of custard powder oak, blackberry, prune, some fresh mint and spice. Full-bodied, and at this stage, feels a little harsh, rather than the smooth flow you’d expect from a style using a dried grape component. Firm acidity, tang, somewhat gritty tannin, saline and earthy finish. Arguably, given its price point, released too young. We shall see.
