Red wine with a fully developed colour, rather tawny. The nose has a certain complexity, very traditional style here with dry fruity notes, rose petals, some wood and chocolate praline; something sweet in there. Good grip on the palate; it’s a medium weight with quite pronounced tannin, still with a high extract underlined by that quite sweet fruity character with notes of dried cherry, dried plum. It still has a certain complexity, I like the spiciness here. It definitely has length as well. No new oak, traditional style in old barrels; but very good length, then more sweet fruit and that spiciness emerging on the finish. I like this style a lot; this particular example still feels a bit youthful to me, but then again when I think about traditional gastronomy with it like risotto with mushroom or anything in that direction would certainly make the wine more appealing and friendlier, so good potential here.
