Made 100% from Fruilano picked off a single vineyard of 70-year-old vines. The Bastianich Plus is ripe and powerful on the nose, showing mature mandarin orange, melon and pear. Rich and dense on the palate with an immense finish and ripe, round fruit.
The Bastianich Plus is great with foie gras and shellfish (scallops, shrimp and lobster, especially). Also with soft cheeses. Try it with spicy cuisines such as thai or vietnamese.
"It's fantastic. It's like putting cloves, white pepper and peeled almonds in your mouth at the same time. A great wine. Full-bodied, hints of ripe fruit and a persistent and fruity finish. Fantastic and Electric. The best." James Suckling
"The Plus is another masterpiece. Generous tones of hazel fruit, marzipan almond, toasted hazelnut, honeysuckle and sweet apricots perfectly integrated, runs exceptionally smooth but equally rich and powerful. Dense texture and long persistence. It's never heavy or cloying. Daring, opulent and perfectly balanced." RP
