Bright ruby/cherry red colour. Aromas of eastern spice, perfume and florals –
jubey redfruits, violets, sweet/savoury herbs – leading to the rustic charm of
earth/peat and some truffle. Also shows glazed cherry and rhubarb, licorice and
a slight toffee hint.
The palate is medium-bodied, warm and generous. Spicy redfruits abound -
cherry, rhubarb, some prune and choc cherry. Eastern spices of clove and
cardamom, and minerally fine tannin round it out. The juicy fruit flavours and
textures lead to the classic crunchy acid/tannin flesh-out on the back palate.
An Italian classic wine style, firmly structured, yet approachable in its youth.
Best enjoyed with food.
