Good color, not very elegant and precise on the nose, supple, lacks center and focus in the mouth. No acidity but no tension in the aftertaste.
The fruit is tender, but the wine lacks depth. Nevertheless, it expresses a very sincere personality, in a not very complex but honest way.
Lightly sweet, very slightly herbaceous nose; fresh middleweight, with a firm fruit tannin. A little “edgy” and dry to taste at the moment and, though quite fine, just lacks charm; seems to be a touch of unripeness here, which makes the wine finish a bit short for its class. Disappointing on this showing. Should be better. 2014–22?
