Pittnauer Pitti Red Burgenland 2018
The ‘Pitti’ is a blend of 50% Rotburger (formerly known as Zweigelt), 40% Blaufränkisch, and 10% Merlot coming from younger vines. Before I even poured this wine into a glass I could smell baking spice, particularly clove, jumping out of the bottle. That intensity calmed down and along with the aromatic spice the nose was full of bramble and blackberry jam. The palate is a little denser than I expected and was full of stewed plum, ripe strawberry and black currant jam.
