SENSORY ANALYSIS

Ruby red. On the nose, it presents hints of red orange jam, black mulberries, Etna blackberries on a magmatic background of flint stone; followed by iron hints, notes of anise, oregano, and capers that finish on a spiced carousel of cloves and cardamom. A fresh, pleasant, and elegant sip, with a savory trail that finishes on harmonious tannins. Very persistent finish that returns on echoes of lava flows.
