Cascina Barisel, La Cappelletta 2019 – Nizza

The wine has a ruby color of medium intensity. The nose offers complexity, freshness and combines a floral bouquet (rose, lily, violet), herbaceous touches (wild mint, fresh tobacco, rosemary in syrup) and a fine spicy side (licorice, cumin, cloves) with juicy and ripe fruits (black cherry, wild strawberry, wild blackberry, crushed blueberry, raspberry coulis). We also feel a very slight note of undergrowth in the background. The palate offers freshness, juiciness and lots of fruit. We find the flavors of ripe morello cherry, wild strawberry, raspberry coulis, red currant jelly, wild plum with its tannic side on the palate, as well as sweet spices (licorice, a hint of cinnamon, grilled vanilla), a touch of chocolate (mint chocolate, chocolate cherry) and mint. There are also fine notes of caramelized hazelnut and flowers (peony, rose) on the gourmand and persistent finish. The tannins are relatively powerful, but fine. Good level of acidity, which brings freshness. A well-constructed, concentrated, generous and rather balanced wine.
