Pico Maccario, Epico 2020 – Nizza Riserva

The wine has a ruby color of medium intensity. The nose is savoury, gourmand and finely spicy. It expresses notes of licorice, fennel seeds, black pepper berries, cumin, nutmeg, as well as touches of roasted aromatic herbs (thyme, rosemary, oregano), mint, basil, flowers (lily, peony, rose), a fine touch of graphite, toasted hazelnut, as well as a refined and ripe fruity substance (wild strawberry, wild blackberry, morello cherry, roasted red cherry, crushed raspberry). The mouth is full, enveloping and warm. It expresses notes of juicy ripe fruit: wild strawberry, morello cherry, red cherry jam, crushed raspberry, wild blackberry, crème de cassis (with its warming touch), cherry in kirsch, as well as sweet spices (licorice, cumin, cloves), roasted aromatic herbs (thyme, rosemary, oregano), a touch of graphite in the background. The tannins are fine, textured and enveloping, with a beautiful structure. The finish is supple, gourmand, with a warming touch of alcohol, but well balanced.
