Tasting Notes
Limpid, with a bright, consistent ruby red coat.
The wide and varied olfactory spectrum is of undoubted quality and intensity. Notes of red flowers reminiscent of pot pourri intertwine with hints of ripe fruit with red and black pulp such as plum, sour cherry and hard cherry. The olfactory range is completed by hints of Mediterranean herbs and smoky notes.
The sip is rich, satisfying, with perfectly smooth and linear tannins. A caress for the palate, which is completed with a very persistent aftertaste of ripe fruit and delicate nuances of medicinal herbs.
A wine that tells the story of the territory, a sample that confirms the excellent production line from the Marisa Cuomo cellars.
