Tasting Notes
Upon visual examination, in the glass, the sample is limpid, intense ruby ​​red in color, with imperceptible garnet textures, consistent.
Its olfactory range is of fine and wide quality. Floral hints reminiscent of a pot pourri, fruity notes of ripe dark berry fruits and jam. An effluvium of sweet spices accompanied by cigar box toasts. Balsamic nuance in the finish.
Particularly elegant and vigorous sip. Its tannic texture is important on the whole, silky and pleasant on the palate. Ripe fruit closure accompanied by a balsamic note.
Tasted in combination with wild boar alla cacciatora.
