Black fruit, spicy, very earthy. Smooth tannins and long finish. Goes well with olives, tomato dishes.

👁 Beautiful ruby-garnet colour
👃Warm on the nose, strawberry and blackberry, some gaminess
👅 Black cherry, strawberry, ripe plum, great structure. Chewy thick tannins, black peppery to finish.
✍️ Easy drinking, easy going. Great everyday wine. Try it with black olives.

I can see the potential but I really think this 2012 could use a few years. I'm not an expert and don't know how Nero ages but to me it's a bit tight and tannic.
