Romilda Barbera Arbiola 2011
Very dark garnet color with bright reflections. The bouquet is intense, fragrant, persistent, powerful with a distinctive nose of rose petals, Morello cherries, and plums. On the palate it is structured, persistent and fresh. The nose has great finesse and offers peceptions of red fruit and good minerality. The flavor is structured, with good smoothness; the acidity is well supported by the alcoholc content. Very persistent and long final. Served in ample wine glasses.
