Contesa – Vigna Corvino 2017 Passerina – Abruzzo

The nose is fruity. The wine needs to be put in carafe. It reveals notes of quince, ripe almond and citrus (kumquat, tangerine …) associated with fine touches of apple, mirabelle plum as well as discreet hints of ripe pineapple and spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, (very) slightly tight, a bit gourmand and offers a good definition, a fine acid frame, a fine suavity, juiciness, a good freshness as well as fleshiness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe citrus (lemon, mandarin, kumquat, pink grapefruit) associated with small notes of apple, pineapple as well as a discreet hint of quince. Good length.
