Grenache from Sardegna. Blackberry, cherry, earthy mushroom, soft milk chocolate and suede leather boot. On the palate red cherry with stem, ripe blueberry with a hint of marshmallow and chocolate. Touches of earthy compost and wet leaves. medium plus acidity with a touch of jalapeno on the full finish. Medium plus body. Well balanced.
