Tasting Notes

Vintage 2018     |    Alcohol 13.50% vol

Wine with a fascinating ruby red color with reflections tending to purple, of great brightness. Excellent clarity, transparency and chromatic intensity.

The fruity component (cherry and blackberry) is well blended with vegetal (freshly cut grass) and spicy (green pepper) scents, a classic expression of the grape.

Upon tasting, it enters the mouth decisively with a good softness on the palate, but with equally pleasant tannic, fresh and savory sensations correctly expressed. The evolution in the glass is very interesting to re-propose aromatic hints already highlighted on the nose, but with a more mature imprint (cherry compote) and an elusive “nuance” of smoked. Excellent tactile and retro olfactory persistence.

Serving suggestions
First courses with well-structured seasonings (including game); second courses of sheep meat, but also more demanding (game). Alternatively, it is also excellent with second courses of beef.

Serving temperature
To be offered, in a heated environment, at 14 ° C. Its oxygenation after uncorking is recommended.
