Tasting Notes
Clear, garnet red with purple reflections, consistent.
On the nose the sample is: vinous, floral, fruity and toasted.
The wine opens with elegant cellar aromas, followed by aromas of laurel and rosemary, the floral part is intense where notes of geranium and carnation stand out, fruity scent of plum and black cherry, accompanied by toasting of cigar boxes, closes with a balsamic finish pine.
Pleasant sip, fairly balanced, with good persistence with a balsamic aftertaste.
It is recommended in combination with a dish of polenta with crispy speck and fontina.
