Tintilia del Molise Riserva

Tintilia del Molise Rosso Riserva DOP

 

The spirited and jovial red ruby can fool even the most skilled one in predicting what scents will be encountered. In fact, to the nose we are hit by a wave of various scents among which predominates a sweet spice, resting on a bed of cherry liqueur and surrounded by violet petals. With every passing minute cocoa and putty rubber are clearly arising, with no exclusion of a hint of sweet tobacco. On the palate licorice shows up, worthily accompanied by cherry liqueur; the long persistence of the drink is supported by a wonderful tannin countered by its enviable alter ego of freshness.
