Cascina Garitina, Gianola 2016 – Nizza Riserva

The wine has a deep ruby color. The nose is concentrated, spicy and fruity. It offers depth, complexity, as well as a warm side of roasted and jammy fruits, combined with a touch of kirsch. We find in particular notes of morello cherry jam, roasted red cherry, crushed wild strawberry, raspberry jam, amarena cherry, crushed blackberry, prunes macerated in alcohol, crème de cassis, dark chocolate, dried fig, as well as a touch of dried mint, licorice, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, toasted cumin seeds and roasted aromas (caramelized hazelnut, toasted coconut, sweet coffee), dried rose and dried blueberry in the background. The palate is fleshy, generous and powerful. It expresses jammy, dried and roasted fruits (cherry jam, prunes, strawberry jam, dried violet fig, amarena cherry, prunes in alcohol, chocolate morello cherry, blackcurrant liqueur, blackberry liqueur) with a touch of freshness and a tannic touch of wild plum. We also find flavors of mint chocolate, bitter cocoa, cinnamon, roasted vanilla, cloves, licorice (with a hint of star anise), as well as roasted notes (caramelized hazelnut, toasted almond, toasted coconut, coffee) and dried rose and undergrowth. The tannins are fine, but powerful and firm. The finish is warm and fleshy, even with a touch of alcohol, but a slight bitterness and a salivating acidity bring a certain freshness. Lots of concentration, flesh and power.
