Il vino è buono, non c'è dubbio. Fatto bene, senza difetti, bello corposo e con una struttura possente. Senza difetti tanto da fare pensare "dov'è il trucco"?
È il classico vino piacione, rotondone e morbidone, forse un pò troppo morbidone tanto da pensare che non sia tutto primitivo ma frutto dell'unione di altre uve. Certamente il legno fa la sua parte nella rotondità di questo vino, però il sospetto del merlot ti accompagna per tutto il tempo.
A parte tutto è un vino che si beve volentieri con belli profumi anche complessi che si fondono alle sensazioni fruttate di mora. Potente in bocca e interessante anche la persistenza.
Michele Landolfi
