We enjoyed this just inside the recommended drinking window – I’m not patient when it comes to holding wine.
I was very nervous when I removed the capsule to find what looked to be a moldy cork. It was dry and broke off when I opened it, but the wine was clean and unaffected.
Straight from Piedmonte, this wine is a pretty, translucent ruby on the eyes. The aromas show a nose of cherry with dried leaf, petal and pomegranate.
The palate is dry with powdery tannins, some fresh and lightly developed fruit – strawberry and red plum – and significant dried grass, tarragon and cedar with dried rose petals.
WSET Very Good, and available worldwide.
