Poggio Mandorlo – Le Ombre 2012 – Toscana IGT

The nose is elegant and offers a small intensity, a small freshness/minerality, a fine complexity as well as a good finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of ripe strawberry, wild small fruits and small notes of ripe blackberry associated with fine touches of Sichuan pepper, discreet hints of olive tree, spices, liquorice/sweet spices as well as subtle hints of olive tree and cocoa. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, gourmandize, tension, a fine density as well as a small straigthness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe blackberry, ripe wild raspberry and small notes of ripe small red fruits associated with small touches of toasted, tonka bean as well as discreet hints of spices, garrigue, black olive, very fine hints of caramelization (in the background) and a subtle hint of tobacco. Tannins are fine, well-built, elegant and structuring.  An imperceptible hint of salinity on the finish. Gourmandize and a very fine chew on the finish.
