Tasting Notes
Limpid, intense ruby red color, consistent.
On the nose the sample is intense, quite complex and of fine quality. Floral notes of violet and peony are highlighted, followed by notes of small dark berries such as black currant, blackberry and blueberry, hints of licorice stick close to the olfactory range.
In the mouth the sip is warm, with evident tannins, but well balanced and pleasant. Overall balanced in its components, it gives a fairly persistent black pepper finish. Overall sample of fine quality.
Tasted in combination with a platter of cured meats and semi-aged cheeses.
