A cherry red robe. On the nose, the opening note is fresh peat with a hint of menthol. On the palate, this wine is clean with just a touch of meatiness and wild herbs. With a little air, it opens up and displays spicy notes reminiscent of Mediterranean scrubland; silky tannins are melded with ripe fruit. A wine that boasts a sense of place and a strong personality, combined with grace and elegance.
