Clear sample, cherry red of medium intensity, particularly bright.
The nose opens with hints reminiscent of a potpourri of slightly withered red flowers, followed by an aroma of dark berry fruits such as currants, raspberries and blueberries. Delicate traces of undergrowth. Closing with notes of Mediterranean scrub and balsamic nuance of eucalyptus.
Excellent correspondence in the mouth where all the olfactory sensations are confirmed. The sip is round, velvety with a soft tannin, supported by a good persistence.
A well made wine, harmonious in its entirety, to be enjoyed with grilled meats, but also to be enjoyed in pleasant company.
