Val di Cornia DOC Okenio Terradonnà, Tasting notes:
An impenetrable ruby-red mantle, the elegant and powerful bouquet highlights blackberry and cassis against a background of humus and fern; it then hints at balsamic resins, coffee and cinnamon. It has a remarkable structure with dense tannins. The alcoholic component is properly integrated in the progression thanks to the contribution of a generous sapidity. The finish is persistent and elegant.
