Fresh greenery, young tree kind of aroma with a hint of chalkiness, and some floral qualities. Gentle attack, with a lot of cherries on the mid-palate. There is solid body here, but it's pretty gentle. The wine is pretty hot on the back end, with red fruit presenting itself for good length. I like the fruit acidity in the body, and the bittersweet finish reminds me of dark chocolate a little bit.

Walter Bressia offers this restrained cabernet - pay no attention to the 14.8% alcohol - with aromas of freshly cut navel orange and clove; if it were sweeter, it would seem like a wine already mulled. Instead it offers a straightforward and tangy taste that's a good match for sharp cheeses, especially goat and sheep. (AV 88, http://argovino.com/?p=1330)

Tasting Notes:

This wine shows a purple colour in the glass. On the nose, it offers spicy and toasted oak aromas with mineral and redcurrant notes. Full bodied, rich, incipiently complex, fruity and gentle, this typical Cabernet is well balanced witha long finish. This wine will get better in the next 2 or 3 years and will reach its peak in 2014, drinkable up to 2020.
