Tenuta Il Falchetto, Brico Roche 2018 – Nizza Riserva

The wine has a ruby color of medium intensity. The wine is a bit reserved on the nose and benefits from being aerated. It expresses the savoury and sweet notes of red chocolate cherry, juicy morello cherry, wild strawberry, blackberry, raspberry jam, crème de cassis and blueberry jam, combined with notes of dark chocolate, roasted aromatic herbs (thyme, rosemary, bay leaf), mint, as well as a fine spiciness (licorice, roasted cumin seeds, coriander seeds, nutmeg, a hint of vanilla) and a bouquet of fresh flowers ( rose, peony, wild flowers), as well as a touch of roasting (mild coffee, caramelised hazelnut). The palate is full, juicy, ripe and a little jammy, with a warm side of alcohol, but at the same time fresh. It expresses notes of crushed wild strawberry, raspberry coulis, juicy morello cherry, red cherry jam, blackberry, crushed blackcurrant and crème de cassis, combined with flavors of mint chocolate and sweet spices (licorice, cumin, cloves, coriander seeds), accompanied by a peppery hint and a fine floral bouquet (dried rose, peony, lily). We also find a very fine touch of coffee and tertiary note of undergrowth on the finish. Beautiful persistence, with gourmandise, a warming touch and freshness. Good level of acidity, good persistence on sweet spices and structured, but supple tannins.
