Poggio Mandorlo Il Guardiano 2014
The nose is elegant, full, fruity, very slightly tight, slightly powerful and offers richness as well as density. It reveals notes of boysenberry, cassis and slight notes of crushed blackberry associated with a slight/ discreet hint of rose, wild strawberry, flowers as well as a touch of spices and a subtle iodine hint. The palate is fruity, generous, suave, gourmand, elegant and offers finesse as well as suavity. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, fresh/ ripe wild berries and slight hints of fresh/ripe wild strawberry associated with discreet hints of chocolate toasted oak as well as a very discreet hint of almond (on the background), cedar wood, dark chocolate and olive (on the background). Tannins are beautifully chewy. Beautiful, juicy, suave and gourmande persistence. There is a very discreet hint of blueberry on the finish/aftertaste.
