2011 ()

pink robe with one or two red tints; slight reduction on the nose, and also a firm, rather red wine reticence about it – compact aroma of red cherry here. The palate is wide and tight-knit, gives a block or wad of red fruit with a little breeze of acidity at the end. Best suited to food and local dishes, grilled sardines etc. Lovely. 13.5°. €6.50.
