Sweet rose petal, mint, sage and red berry nuances lift from the glass. A touch of whole clusters add character without overpowering the wine's balance, which is magnificent.
...dried fruit, strawberries and tangerines. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and a powerful, intense finish.
There is a concerted effort to bring about concentration, richness, tannin and fruit intensity. You might think it'd be too much in a hot vintage like 2017. However, I found this wine to be especially graceful in the context of the very robust Parusso power threshold. There is extra astringency here, so please take care to give this bottle generous aging time. In keeping in line with a wine once made by Armando Parusso, this is a blend of fruit from Bussia, Mosconi and Mariondino.
Minty cherry fruit with hints of gingerbread. Layer of firm, slightly drying tannins over supple and ripe fruit, with a hint of rum and a sweet oak note.
