Roero DOCG Sergentin

Tasting Notes

Tasting notes

Deep, dark, structured, balanced, focused and bright, but slightly closed. Tar, roses, strawberry, raspberry, truffle and white pepper, with that classic sandy, saline, fishy, sandstone character coming through with time in the glass and bottle. Haunting again but not as expressive or as open.

Much more tannic structured, and more classic Roero zip to the acidity.

Chocolate, coffee and earth. More piercing and focused. This will need a serious amount of time and may even already have closed in itself for the time being.

A long persistent finish that seems short and tannic to begin with, but the finish is long and there is plenty of flavor and complexity hidden beneath the tannin.
