Tasting Note

Lifted, spicy nose shows pepperoncino freshness, give it time to open which will lead to peonies’ floral intensity with blackfruit and huckleberry. The palate has a soft elegant density, peppery structure with nice savouriness to the cherry and raspberry fruit. Expressive personality, very aerial and intense at the same time. Wellcrafted, balanced with the right acidity potential for development.
