"The aromatic at this stage is embellished by wood but nothing demonstrative. The style is robust and opulent: feels the typicality of the terroir. "The notes of bacon are made by syrah rather than by the wooded, well run throughout the tasting." 17.5/20 RVF Guide 2019
This wine is dense, it sports a gorgeous Ruby purple intense, with purple reflections. The nose, pleasant and complex, exhale after breathing in the aromas of violets and cassis. Then there are the notes of spices, dominated by licorice on a gently wooded background.
On the palate the wine shows dense and concentrated, with aromas of black fruit, tapenade, violet and spices. The structure is strong with sweet fine tannins and overall, harmonious and round, seduced by a balance managed on the richness of the material.
The final, spicy and nicely wooded, ends on a good length with a hint of minerality, guarantee of a good aging potential.
