Wine Entry : Aleatico Maremma Toscana Indicazione Geografica Tippica 2006 (Italian)

On the recommendation of the staff at The Wine Gallery located near Leng Kee, I purchased this bottle of unique sweet red. Sweet whites are reasonably easy to find, however sweet reds are rarer. It has 11% of alcohol, fairly light purplish colour, came in a 500ml bottle and cost my wallet 49 dollars. We were a little afraid that it was going to taste like port, but thankfully it didn't and was much milder.

Smell : Fragrant rose flora and candided apple scents.

Taste : Coy delicate sweetness, akin to plum juice with some lush ripen red apple flavours. However it had a slight medicinal bitterness near the end of the middle palate.

After-taste : Confident, subtle acidity structure at the end. No tannins making it comfortably easy-drinking.
