Elegantly structured, delicious and loaded with personality, this benchmark Nizza offers earthy aromas of truffle, leather, game, pressed violet and ripe black-skinned fruit. The aromas carry over to the savory palate, along with star anise, black cherry, mature plum and crushed mint. It's balanced by polished tannins and fresh acidity. Drink through 2025.
Smooth finish, great bouquet, excellent value. A great wine to go with a WIDE variety of food for the everyday table.
