"The wine is a deep ruby with luminescent violet reflections. The aromas are classic. There’s plenty of crushed berry, fennel, flowers and spice notes on the nose, with a soft vanilla like sandalwood note emerging later. On the palate, the wine is fresh and vibrant with a pretty core of ripe cherry, cured meat, dried herb and anise character. This is fresh, and shows no overripe signs from the warm vintage year. Balanced and long, with soft moderately structured tannins that melted away with the sausage and the tiny pork meatballs."
