Tasting Notes
Clear sample, ruby red in color, lively with garnet reflections, consistent.
The olfactory examination highlights hints of red flowers such as violet and pink, wild berries such as blackberry, plum and black cherry, nutmeg, Mediterranean scrub, sweet tobacco and coffee, nail polish.
In the mouth the sip is important, the tannin is well present but not aggressive, the drink is fresh, balanced, persistent. A finish of ripe fruit of undoubted pleasantness remains in the mouth.
It is recommended in combination with a platter of aged cheeses and cured meats.
