Little Mafalda 2016 – Douro

Little Mafalda 2016 – Douro

The nose is fruity and offers a very fine power (in the background) and juiciness. It reveals notes of black cherry, ripe red berries and a touch of wild ripe wild strawberry combined with small / discreet hints of chocolate, toasted oak as well as very discreet hints of gray pepper and a discreet hint of grove (in bottom). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, well-built and offers suavity, precision, fine tension, gourmandise, freshness, juiciness, an acidulous frame as well as a good definition. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, fleshy strawberry / blackberry and small notes of blackberry / juicy blueberry associated with small / discreet touches of violet as well as discreet hints of zan (in the background) and olive black. There are a very discreet hint of chocolate and caramelization / toasted almond on the finish / persistence. Tannins are well-built and precise.
