Intense aroma of raspberries with a light floral touch. Very expressive and welcoming. On the palate, this Pinot is very charming with ripe, perfectly integrated tannins and harmonious acidity, beautiful density and fruitiness. The body is quite full for a pinot, but still light-footed. Also in the finish very balanced and juicy. A wine which manages the balancing act between complexity and easy drinking pleasure in an immaculate style!
