Anfiteatro

Vintage: 2017

 

Appearance: Clear, medium, ruby tending to garnet.

Nose: The nose is clean and pronounced with juicy cranberries, cherries, and rhubarb jam. Inviting aromas of iris, baking spices, and white pepper, and a touch of juniper add to the unfolding complexity.

Palate: This wine is dry with high acidity and well-defined tannin and medium body. The palate is intense, with red fruits emerging first, followed by layered flavors in evolution – pear drop, almond, juniper berries, and a twist of dried citrus peel. Shape-shifting and enchanting, with a very long, meditative finish.
