In the glass, the sample is limpid, ruby red in color with a very light, consistent purplish texture.
The nose opens with a range of complex, intense and fine quality aromas. Floral notes of freshly cut wildflowers are covered by an intense fruity scent. Wild berries in jam intertwine with hints of cherries preserved in alcohol. The olfactory bouquet is completed by delicate notes of sweet spices such as cinnamon and vanilla and then closed with a nuance of toasted coffee.
The sip is fresh, important. The tannin is decisive, precise, but not yet completely silky. The finish is long, persistent with balsamic herbs from the Mediterranean scrub.
An intriguing wine, an expression of the territory, which has not yet expressed its great potential.
