Great at the view, good a the nose. You can find a lot of aromas inside, like strawberry, blackberries, cherry. after a while is easy to recognize vanilla flavor and a little bit of white pepper. there is also a mineral note, with a flavor of slate. Great the acidity and the tannins, that are really elegant, soft and silky. Medium the body. easy to pair, easy to drink, also like an aperitif. Well done! I hope to find this wine also in Italy.
