Wine analysis:Alcohol 12.5% vol. Total acidity 5.5 g/l Residual sugar 3- 4.5 g/l
Sensory impressions: A brilliant coral red wine with strong copper hues, its nose is gracefully reminiscent of fresh herbs, oregano and marjoram, leading on to more fruity notes of raspberry, sour cherry and pomegranate, and a mineral, almost marine finish. The palate is harmonious and pleasant, smooth and mellow at first, then becoming more vibrant, spiced up by a fresh hint of raspberry, and finishing dynamically on long, delightfully bitter citrus notes of chinotto oranges.
