Marco Bonfante Bricco Bonfante2017 – Nizza Riserva

The wine has a ruby color of medium intensity. The nose offers complexity, depth and a savory spicy side. It expresses notes of grated nutmeg, fresh vanilla, licorice, cloves, as well as a delicious and sweet woody side: notes of toasted coconut, toasted wood and caramelized hazelnut. There are also fine tertiary notes, harmoniously enveloped in the fruit: aromas of tobacco, roasted mushrooms and a touch of undergrowth. The fruity side is ripe and delicious: we find notes of roasted red cherry, morello cherry, wild strawberry, blackcurrant, red cherry jam and blueberry, as well as a fine floral side in the background (violet, rose dried). The mouth is enveloping, soft, but straight, chiseled and fresh. It expresses notes of very ripe fruit and jam in the attack (ripe morello cherry, red cherry jam, roasted red cherry, juicy blackberry, crème de cassis, fresh blackcurrant), associated with notes of chocolate, spices sweet (cinnamon, licorice, vanilla, clove, grated nutmeg) and a floral touch (violet, iris, dried rose). The tertiary notes are very delicate and appear at the end of the palate (tobacco, roasted mushrooms). The tannins are fine and smooth. The finish is delicious, very fruity and ripe, but fresh at the same time, thanks to a nice acidity. Beautiful harmony, deliciousness and structure.
