The nose alone, let’s you know you are into old world territory. This wine complex aromatics are; cherries, plums, raspberries, sweet spices, church wood and soft leather. The mouth feel is well structured with balanced acidity and grainy tannins. Long berry with refreshing acidity on the finish. A truly enjoyable and charming wine, which I enjoyed with Vietnamese food.
