Fine ruby red, slight orange shade with ageing. A full, heavy and enduring bouquet. Moderate dry with elegant bitter finish, robust and full-bodied. Serve with roasts, game, meat on the spit and mixed grills, aged cheeses.
The 2010 Notarpanaro shows crushed cherries in a cloud of dusty soil, sweet minerals, wild herbs, and hints of animal musk plus notes of seared meat and exotic spice, in a rustic yet truly enjoyable mix. Its silky textures are balanced by zesty acids, dark red fruits and a twang of bitter greens. This finishes with medium length, yet fresh, showing herbal and earth notes while tapering off to a hint of white pepper.
This well-priced, aged wine offers aromas of brandied cherries, spiced game and herbs on the nose. Its round feel and soft tannins make it entirely approachable to drink on its own, while its savory palate and graphite finish make it a perfect accompaniment to braised lamb or duck. Drink now.
