Description

Warm and enveloping but at the same time unmistakable style and power

 

Visual aspect:

the wine has a purple red color of great intensity with ruby reflections.

The first nose is expressive and complex.

Clear notes of blueberry and cherry in alcohol are recognizable.

Subsequently, the elegant balsamic notes of eucalyptus and mint given by the aging of 18 months in French oak barrels give depth and thickness to the wine.

After ventilation, spicy hints of pepper and Mediterranean herbs emerge.

On the palate the decisive character of the Teran is immediately perceived.

The sharp freshness is balanced by the copious tannins that envelop the medium palate with fullness and elegance.

 

Aging 18 months in barrique

 

NOSE:

Direct, open warm, it expresses notes of cherry, wild berries, but at the same time also pepper and Mediterranean herbs.

MOUTH:

Decisive, typical and varietal character of the Istrian Teran, accompanied in small part by a Bordeaux blend.
