Graceful strawberry and raspberry flavors are remarkably pure and fresh, offering a jaw-dropping combination of concentration and vivacity, and picking up anise, candied rose and baking spices with air. Clings to the palate yet seems almost weightless, finishing with amazing clarity and persistence. Really remarkable wine.
