Tasting notes
Sample with an intense ruby red color, almost impenetrable, with a good consistency.
The nose opens with hints of slightly withered flowers reminiscent of hyacinth, iris and lavender. Aromas of ripe berries, a note of ripe blackberry stands out, almost jam, enveloping that remains pleasantly, and then leaves, in the finish, the place for hints of licorice and sweet spices.
The sip is important, with a velvety and well-polished tannin. Elegant, with good persistence, the sample is balanced in its parts. The scent of ripe fruit and a slight balsamic note in the finish remain on the palate.
It is recommended with a porcini mushroom risotto.
