Martellotto La Bomba Cabernet 2016

SKU 24856


Blending is key to creating the "La Bomba" Martellotto Cabernet which is fruit focused with balanced oak, integrated tannins, and moderate alcohol. The grapes were fermented in small lots and barreled down for fourteen months. The wine was lightly filtered, blended and bottled in the fall after harvest. Cabernet provides structure, black cherry fruit, and pepper flavors. Petite Verdot adds blue fruits, baking spices and vanilla flavors. Malbec is a purple monster of inky color and roasted meats. Cabernet Franc bring an herbal component with oregano and thyme. "La Bomba" means "the bomb" in Italian, and this wine intends to make a statement when paired with any grilled or stewed meats or when served at your finest table. Enjoy this wine now until 2023 or beyond. Only 25 barrels made. ~Alla Salute!

Wine EnthusiastCharred meat, smoked boysenberries, crushed gravel and charcoal make for a savory nose on this bottling by Greg Martellotto, whose Italian family has made wine for generations. Dried herbs, tangy cranberries and roasted meats show on the palate, which offers a hefty weight and should age well.
