Tasting Notes
Limpid, almost impenetrable intense ruby red color, consistent.
The olfactory spectrum opens with floral notes reminiscent of a potpourri of slightly withered red flowers, followed by an aroma of ripe wild berries ranging from blackberry, blueberry to black currant. The fruity scents are followed by elegant notes of aromatic herbs, closing with toasted coffee powder and cigar box.
On the olfactory taste examination, an important but well-polished tannin is highlighted, the sip is rich, balanced, but not excessively persistent. The quality is undoubtedly fine.
An intense wine, well made. Pleasant that meets the taste and invites a new taste. Another wine that “narrates” the values and terroir of this corner of the Amalfi Coast.
It is recommended in combination with a stewed rabbit.
