Attractive sweet berries with some wet-earth, crushed-stone and lavender undertones. Full-bodied with a solid core of fruit and a tight, linear tannin backbone...tight, integrated and polished. A fantastic Castelletto.
Red/purplish fruit, blood orange, mint, spice and lavender all grace this beautifully translucent, expressive Barolo...all the elements are impeccably balanced.
Dried flowers, potpourri and aromas of crushed stone open the bouquet...nicely balanced...shows some heat, intensity and density but also leaves room for nuanced tones of spice, crushed white pepper and limestone.
Harmonious and well laced with cherry and berry fruit flavors... Tar, menthol and tobacco accents gather on the finish.
Aromas of woodland berries, French oak, coconut and menthol lead the nose. Reflecting the aromas, the full-bodied palate offers dried cherry, blood orange, licorice and roasted coffee bean set against assertive, close-grained tannins that grip the close.
Tea leaves, shy cherry and a suggestion of garden herbs. Brooding cherry-liqueur note and a hint of gingerbread. Concentrated palate with bags of sweet-sour cherry fruit and lots of coating tannins.
