Roero Val dei Preti 2016 Matteo Correggia
Ruby red in color.
On the nose it is intense and very fine, fruity with notes of cherry and more obviously red plum. There is no lack of floral aspects with the violet to head. The notes of spontaneous herbs, roots and bittering enrich the whole. Some sections of chocolate together with some spices, such as vanilla and cinnamon, close the picture.
In the mouth it is already balanced. The tannins are gentle. Good minerality and similar acidity. On the other side of the scale, ie that of softness, the pseudo heat of the alcoholic grade and the poly alcohols are integrated to the hardness, for a great final result. From the palate aromas of red fruit and china arrive. Very persistent.
