Taurasi DOCG

Ruby garnet. The nose opens on herbaceous notes, the fruit is represented by blackberries; then a floral touch of chamomile brings the smell back to the roots and smoky finish. The sip has a soft and glyceric incipit that plays on the roundness; only in the second measure are the tannins, perfectly integrated, and the imperceptible acid lash.
