Red wine with a medium-deep ruby core and a slightly tawny rim. Intense perfume here, combining wild berries with a hint of roasted oak, tobacco, sweet spices. Nice and juicy palate here, I think it’s a wine with a good deal of extract here; intense tannin but they’re already quite polished, finely grained. Juicy red fruit here, like raspberry, cherry; well-defined by a good level of acidity even if the fruit appears on the sweeter side. Nice wine here, I think this is a traditional style with a long aging in oak, but it still maintains its fruit without appearing dry. It has a good length – a very good length actually. Apart from that fruitiness it’s well-nuanced, there are things going on there, good spiciness on the finish. I just would like a nice creamy pasta here; fettucine with cèpe mushrooms please! Thank you.
