Burdese is a modern, Bordeaux-inspired blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc with bright fruit flavors, fresh acidity, and natural succulence that is one of the most refined and classically structured of all of Planeta's reds. Deep red in color, this rich and concentrated wine is laden with aromas of wild berries, macerated black cherries, leather, earth, cacao and mineral notes. Full-bodied, with a vibrant, concentrated and dense tannic structure, yet elegant at the same time. The aromas carry through to the palate, where they combine with spicy balsamic notes, and inky black fruit, cassis, cedar, and sweet baking spices. The whole wine is brilliantly delineated by bright natural acidity.

International Wine Cellar(2003 Vintage) Elegant flavors and aromas of chocolate, coffee and tobacco. Smooth and pure in the mouth, with very good depth of fruit and solid length. An interesting cabernet-based wine that is very well made but at present still somewhat closed and monolithic.
