Tasting Notes
Limpid, intense ruby red color with garnet reflections, consistent.
The range of aromas present in the glass is particularly wide: floral, fruity, spicy, toasted and ethereal. Floral notes reminiscent of a potpourri of slightly withered red flowers, aromas of dark berry fruits such as blackberry and dried plum. Hints of spices such as ground black pepper and star anise. Milk chocolate and nutmeg powder, and then close the olfactory examination with hints of lacquer wax, iodine and enamel.
Perfectly balanced sample in its components, with an impetuous but well-polished tannin. Spicy and fruity notes persist in an almost infinite finish. A very interesting wine.
It is recommended in combination with an alpine fillet.
