Tasting Notes
Limpid, lively ruby red color, not too intense with light garnet nuances, of good consistency.
Sample with a variegated bouquet, opening with hints of fragrant red flowers reminiscent of rose and magnolia flowers, followed by elegant notes of ripe fruit ranging from dark berry fruits such as black currant to more succulent fruits such as plums. Interesting spicy notes of allspice and cloves enrich the scent of scents, followed by toasted aromas reminiscent of oak wood and cigar box accompanied by a closure of aromatic herbs such as rosemary and sage. Balsamic nuances.
The taste-olfactory analysis suggests the important potential not yet expressed, which, with greater refinement, will give harmony. At the moment, the balance between the hard and soft parts is good. The persistence is noteworthy.
It is recommended in combination with polenta with stewed wild boar.
