Complete Wine Profile
👀 Dense red to violet, this one looks really complex. Tears are good in numbers showing a good body and alcohol. 14.5 ABV it is.
👃🏼Again the complexity on the nose as well. Strong plums, black cherry, blackberry, leather, earthy and significant reflection of soil type. Clear vanilla oaky secondary aroma.
👅 Very well-rounded palate. Barolo-like perfume of truffle and marzipan plush, seamless and very rich, showing a note of balsamic and finish with a tooth dusting tannins. Full-bodied, high acidic, dry, and grippy tannins, this one required good decanting and storage. The wine shows some herb notes of pepper and star anise.
🍽 Try this one with authentic Italian pasta topped with cherry tomato and a thick saucy texture. Mushrooms go well but nothing can beat when paired with garlic grilled lamb(well done).
Temp – 15-17 Degree C.
Decanting – 2-3 hours
