Recanti Marselan Reserve 2018
The Recanti Marselan is a barrel-aged kosher red wine made by Recanati with the Marselan variety in Galilee. Recanati Marselan Reserve is an unquestionably Mediterranean single-variety wine. This red wine is made with an unusual variety for the area but it is very elegant and voluminous.Made of 100% Marsela and has a deep ruby red. The wine has an inimitable flowery aroma, raspberry and nutmeg lead to flavors of black cherry, pomegranate and thyme. This wine is bright on the palate, with soft and round tannins and a smooth orange-zest finish. It is complex with earthy notes and has a very full body.
Marselan is a cross between the “wild” Grenache and the “aristocratic and elegant” Cabernet Sauvignon. It originated at the start of the 1960s in the South of France. This is an impressive and powerful Mediterranean wine. Marselan grapes are relatively new in Israel. Recanti Winery unveiled the first harvest of this variety in 2012. In order to restrain the strong vines and generate a low yield, the vineyard is thinned during the ripening period. The remaining grapes receive an array of unique flavours and aromas characteristic of this variety. The wine is matured for 12 months in French oak barrels – approximately half of which are new, and then bottled after coarse filtration.
