Reflective, translucent, medium garnet red consistent from dense core to a watery purple rim. Classic old world Cabernet franc nose albeit slightly riper than chinon or bourgeil. Complex with Medium intensity of ripe green bell pepper bell pepper, pomegranate, black pepper and clove. A dry wine with medium body, medium acid, medium fine and long lasting astringency medium plus heat. Palate is recalls the aromas in the nose with a touch of structure enhancing amaro. Elegant, balanced, and complex....more please, Italy!
