Tasting Notes
Limpid, ruby red in colour, with good consistency.
Upon olfactory examination, the sample offers a fairly complex, intense and fine quality bouquet of scents. It opens with floral notes, which are intertwined with aromas of dark and red berries: a particularly important hint of plum and cherry. They complete the range of perfumes with hints of sweet spices.
Medium-bodied sip, overall balanced, even if the tannin is still a bit intrusive and not perfectly smooth. Good taste-olfactory persistence.
Surely a further period of aging in the bottle will allow the sample to harmonize in its entirety.
