Savoury green wine with Medium acidity with some dry tannins.

Aromas of oak, fig, pomegranate, cinnamon, balsamic, brown sugar and herbs. Taste of oak, vanilla, tobacco, coffee, prune and salt.

This would be perfect with spaghetti alla puttanesca.

The note that I picked out was like a dark cherry. I think I could even describe it as cherry cola. It was nice tasting with some firm tannins. It was a nice wine for the price. However, perhaps more complexity can come out if it was stored for another year or two.
I also want to add that over two hours, this did not evolve, so I see no reason to decant.
Tasted September 2022
