Roses, dry balsamic roses, honey and blackcurrant jam with a eucalyptus balsamic note. Slightly gentle alcohol which is leaving the glass just 5 minutes later the bottle was opened. The nose is soo
I generally do not advise to have hard cheeses with red wines due the bitterness which combined make both unpleasant however I have to say that with this wine you are fine, actually some of the tannin tones in the wine are matching well even for a spicy black peppery pecorino. (surprise – surprise!) As other match I found really interesting duck liver pate with this wine… it seems to be at the same level and both are agreeing on aromaticity, the duck liver pate has a longer finish but, generally at that stage you already had another bite. Actually all three are working well together.
By the way I have been chilling down the wine at 21 degrees and now it seems slightly more harmonic.

The wine, after almost one day of opening time, is still tight, the three main characteristics are still easily perceivable even though the oxidation process has begun leaving some traces of extra acidities on the palate.
Pretty decent anyway.
