- The Wine
This is a beautifully clear ruby wine with no hint of purple at all. After eight years, the nose is still fruity but with other aromas coming through. The strawberry and raspberry dominate but there are meaty and mushroom aromas and a touch of forest floor. The maturity is far more apparent on the palate with stewed plums heading the flavours. The original red fruits are still there but their lightness has developed into a lovely dark consistency. The tannins are not too strong and the acidity is balanced perfectly.
This is a lovely example of Ticinese Merlot and shows why we love Swiss wine so much!
