Valpolicella Classico, TB, Bussola, Veneto, Italy 2011
Dense rich and ripe with huge extract and fruit concentration. Full of flavours of dark cherry nose, currants, dried figs, dates, liquorice and Christmas pudding. There are additional aromas of cedar, spice, wood smoke and hints of game.
The palate is extremely full-bodied, rich and well integrated with cherry liqueur dark chocolates, a lovely freshness and silky mouthfeel, perfectly balanced with the characteristic Italian bitter twist on the finish.
