Tasting Notes

Dried flowers, pot pourri nuances on the nose - so aromatic and perfumed. Dried fruit, cherries and cranberries but with baked and stewed red berry fruit too and fresh red cherries alongside caramel, coffee and dark chocolate. Round, supple and lively, this is gorgeous from the first sip, brimming with lovely sweet and almost sour cherry acidity and juicy strawberry flavours. Creamy, chalky, taught and full this is giving a mouthful of flavour and texture. I love the elegance but also the sheer confidence on show, characterful, nuanced and mouth watering - it's both fun and sensual. Multifaceted with superior freshness - such a long length, wide and expansive, the flavour goes on and on. Slight edges of bitterness fill the mid palate and finish giving the angles and the interest - cola, aniseed, medicinal eucalyptus and dried herbs. Just brilliant. Tasted (and only sold) from magnum. the flavour is still there after 10 minutes. From a 0.25ha plot. Director Federico Ceretto, oenologist Alessandro Ceretto. Less than 500 magnums released via the Place.
