Tangy and fruity. Very sharp. Maybe nice if you like that kin of thing. Maybe better in a few years?

The taste is refreshingly fruity and harmonious, making IL DUCALE the perfect wine for accompanying tasty Italian dishes. Medium bodied, with mellow tannins and a nice balance between fruit and acidity, the taste of IL DUCALE is long-lingering and characterised by hints of blue berries, raspberries and cocoa.

At the palate it is coherent with the olfaction. Sensations of fragrant fresh fruit are accompanied by steady yet gentle tannins, that exalt enjoyable spicy hints. The whole tasting sensation is enriched by a persistent finish, that is incredibly fresh and pleasantly mineral and presents an aftertaste with fascinating notes of rosemary.
