Tasting Notes
Clear, with a ruby red mantle, not intense, with light garnet reflections, of good consistency.
On the nose the sample is complex in the range of its scents: floral, fruity, mineral, spicy and toasted. Aromas reminiscent of a pot pourri of slightly withered red flowers; ripe fruits such as cherries in alcohol, currants and plums; graphite; spicy notes of vanilla, cinnamon and cloves; hints of powdered chocolate and freshly roasted coffee beans.
The sip is fresh and perfectly balanced. Excellent persistence of taste olfactory where an aftertaste of delicate toasting remains. A champion of absolute quality.
It is recommended in combination with a cut of beef with truffle flakes.
