This wine has a dark red, almost black color. The nose is redolent of fresh fruit (raspberries, cherries, strawberries) and, after swirling in the glass, more complex notes of spice, dried herbs, fennel, and a slight floral nuance. The wine is straightforward and well-balanced on the palate, with good concentration and plenty of volume. Despite a substantial quantity of tannin, it remains smooth and rich, with excellent balance between substance, density, and freshness. The texture is delicate and precise. The finish is very long and complex with fresh red fruit, licorice, and cinnamon, as well as more terroir-induced notes of smoke and flint.
