The sample is clear, of a very intense ruby red color with light garnet textures.
Intense floral opening that gives aromas of red rose and carcadè. The fruity component is dominant with a scent of notes of dark, ripe berry fruits, including blueberry tending to cremè de cassis, cherry durone and red plum. Hints that integrate with aromas of sweet spices of licorice stick and star anise, closing with toasting reminiscent of frayed pipe tobacco with a nuance of cocoa powder.
The taste analysis confirms the bouquet of aromas found with the sense of smell. In the mouth the dominant note is however a sensation of ripe fruit, good balance between the parts, as well as its structure, persistent and pleasant in its harmony.
