Bava, Piano Alto 2018 – Nizza

The wine has a pale ruby color with light garnet reflections. The first nose offers lots of spice and distinct tertiary notes. We find aromas of grated nutmeg, licorice, cloves, white pepper, licorice, a touch of juniper berries, as well as tobacco, undergrowth and truffles. We then find floral notes (dried wild flowers, peony, violet, dried rose), herbaceous touch (wild mint, bay leaf, roasted thyme), a hint of torrefaction (toasted hazelnut) and ripe fruit (red cherry, morello cherry, blackberry, wild plum, wild strawberry, crushed raspberry). The palate is savoury, very fruity, with enveloped spicy notes. It expresses the flavors of crushed wild strawberries, juicy morello cherries, strawberry jam, raspberry coulis, crushed blackcurrant and crème de cassis, combined with notes of dark chocolate, chocolate cherry, wild mint, cumin, licorice, cloves, cornflower, peony and rose, as well as a touch of undergrowth in the background. The tannins are very fine and silky, but structured and enveloping. Beautiful salivating acidity which refreshes the warm side on the finish. Beautiful persistence, concentration and sapidity.
