Emiliana 2013

It’s hard to choose between the 2013 Gê and the Coyam from the same vintage, as they are both very good, powerful and elegant at the same time. It’s more a question of taste and how you like Carmenere, which is the dominant grape here, at least in the nose even if not in volume. It is 48% Syrah, 40% Carmenere and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and matured in barrels (60% of them new) for 16 months. The wine has had time to absorb the oak, as it’s been in bottle for a couple of years now. It’s ripe but without excess, and there’s good freshness to hold it together for quite some time. At the end of the day, I think there’s more depth here, so I had to give it the edge. 10,500 bottles produced.
