Tasting notes
Sample, clear, of a very intense garnet red color, almost impenetrable, of good consistency.
Intense aromas of lavender flowers and wisteria open the bouquet of hints of the sample, followed by notes of ripe fruits including blackberry and cassis accompanied by bruised spices of juniper berries and black pepper, final with toasted hints reminiscent of coffee powder mixed with pleasant balsamic and woody notes.
Persuasive impact in the mouth, important sip with strong tannins, long persistence, overall a quality wine.
It is recommended in combination with pappardelle with stewed guinea fowl.
