Ru, Erede di Chiappone Armando 2015 – Nizza Riserva

The wine has a ruby color of medium intensity, with garnet reflections. The nose is subtle and elegant, but fragrant and gourmand. It first expresses savoury notes of dark chocolate and dried fruits (dried red cherry, dried fig, dried cranberries), which combine after aeration with notes of caramel, toasted hazelnut, blond tobacco, caramelised hazelnuts (in the background). Next, we find notes of roasted red cherry, juicy morello cherry, prunes, crushed strawberry, raspberry coulis, as well as grilled vanilla, licorice, cumin, fresh peony, iris and rose, with a very subtle touch of white truffle in the background. The palate is airy, silky and delicate, but with a firm tannin structure, which is expressed at the finish (the tannins are fine, but slightly grippy). We find the flavors of roasted red cherry, morello cherry, crushed wild strawberry, raspberry coulis, crème de cassis, combined with notes of fresh peony, dried rose, caramelised hazelnut, dried fig, as well as ‘has a fine spicy side (toasted vanilla, cinnamon, ground cumin, cloves) and a touch of wet leaves and dried wild flowers in the background. Beautiful salivating acidity and liveliness on the persistent finish. A refined, gourmand and complex wine.
