Pietradolce Contrada Rampante 2014
It's complex on the nose and on the palate and goes waited and tried again. Along the fragrances that open the earthy aromas and freshly smoked, then the fruity and Mediterranean tones. The mouth has matter, the taste is full and lively acidity rushes energy, has a nice dynamism played on tannins and long flavor. It 'a wine in its infancy, to wait over time because it gives the best of itself, and given the early stages so exciting.
