Saturday night with friends (Aperitif RVC): First bottle was flawed. In need of more time, dense and redolent of olives. Didn't budge much through the night but suggested more terroir than I get from most non-indigenous Italian varieties.
Pop'n'poured and followed in the glass for the whole evening.
The wine looks dark ruby colored with medium legs. Youthfull appearance and no sediment in the bottle.
At the nose there are blackberry, blueberry, black currant (cassis), prune, coffee and black pepper. After an opening quite closed, the nose keeps evolving in the glass throughout the evening. Complex and fascinating nose with lots of life left.
The mouth is very elegant and astonishing with great tannins perfectly integrated in a smooth texture. The body is medium. The acidity is medium high and the finish is loooong.
