Tasting Notes
Limpid, intense garnet red color, consistent.
The olfactory examination highlights a bouquet of broad and complex aromas. Floral scents reminiscent of a potpourri of red flowers such as lavender and delicately withered geranium, followed by fruity notes of plum, cherry durone and candied raspberry jelly. The balsamic component reminiscent of fir resin is evident, with elegant spicings of cinnamon, cloves and nuances of licorice root.
The sip is generous, opulent, and rich. Important and well-polished tannin. Good taste olfactory persistence. Sample of fine quality and great freshness intended for long aging.
It is recommended in combination with stewed wild boar.
