(December 18, 2017) ... Colaneri is one of those appassimento wineries that dot Ontario, they just don't do one, they seem to be all dried-fruit ... I personally wish they'd leave some grapes and vintages alone but it seems this manipulation is here to stay. This is their Insieme Red Blend, and at 7 years there are some really pleasant spiced plum and black cherry notes along with the merest hint of volatile acidity and alcohol heat, my advice is to drink up before these characteristics overtake the wine completely (you have another year or maybe two) ... On the palate the alcohol shows through along with some interesting spice mixtures: spiced rum cake and spiced plum pudding. Good news is that the acidity has remained high to keep the wine on the more cleansing side and there's even some vanilla coffee bean on the finish.
