Tasting Notes
Limpid, crimson red in color with light garnet reflections, consistent.
The nose opens with soft fruit notes such as morello cherry, blackberry and wild strawberry embellished with hints of sweet spices: vanilla, nutmeg and liquorice root. The olfactory examination is completed by intriguing aromas of aromatic herbs and a balsamic nuance at the end.
The sip is important, with an elegant and smooth tannic texture. Well balanced in its components, it gives a persistent aftertaste of spices and cigar box.
A vibrant wine, which evolves in the glass, giving new sensations with every sip, a pleasant discovery.
