Very elegant at nose, mainly agrunes, sweet flowers (acacia) on an almonds' bakground.
Velvety to the palate. Well balanced thanks to a fresh minerality. Closes with agrumes' hints.
Opulent, but not heavy.

Ruby red.
Intense, but not complex at nose: Ripe, jammy red fruits (cherries), some red flowers.
Well balanced at taste, with a nice acidity, and a rich structure, almost viscous. Smooth, fruity long ending on elder notes.

Very dark ruby red.
Intense and complex at nose, ematic hints, red oranges, liquorice, dried roses up to graphite notes.
Not an easy wine to drink. Lacking harmony, with detached tannins and components. Mainly with fruity notes. Complex, but not fine. Anarchist natural wine.
