Franco Mondo, Le Rose 2017 – Nizza Riserva

The wine has a ruby color of medium intensity with slight garnet reflections. The nose is elegant, gourmand and fragrant, with beautiful concentration and complexity, all in finesse. The first nose offers a fresh fruity side, with a touch of milk and jam: it expresses, in particular, the notes of fresh morello cherry, crushed blackcurrant, wild strawberry, crushed raspberry, fresh red currants, crème de cassis, cherry yogurt, wild plum and prune cream in the background. We then find a fragrant and sublime floral bouquet: aromas of fresh rose, dried rose, fresh cornflower, violet and lilac, and a delicate and savoury spiciness (cinnamon, grilled vanilla, liquorice, a touch of anise green, fennel seeds and nutmeg), as well as very light notes of damp leaves and undergrowth. The palate is enveloping, silky, and at the same time firm, tannic and structured. It offers a beautiful freshness and expresses the flavors of bird cherry, crushed blackcurrant, wild plum (with its tannic touch), wild strawberry, raspberry coulis, chocolate prunes, mint chocolate, a expressive spiciness, but harmonious and enveloped. We find notes of licorice, fennel seeds, ground cumin, cloves, as well as bitter cocoa, dried rose, dried cornflower and violet. The finish is long, complex, it continues to develop and adds menthol and aniseed notes to the profile of the wine, as well as a fine touch of undergrowth. Beautiful acidity which refreshes the fleshy and chocolatey notes and softens the firmness of the tannins. Beautiful balance and controlled power.
