Aging: Tonneaux

Intense ruby red colour, dense but luminous, with slight reflections of amaranthus and, when turned in the glass, reveals an excellent consistency. The olfactory profile is complex and inviting, with a broad variety of secondary and tertiary suggestions: on opening it is intensely fruity, with notes of the small red and black fruits (blackberries, blueberries, currant), which then give way to disclose more complex suggestions, such as vanilla, liquorice, black pepper. On tasting, La Chiusa reveals good tannins and freshness, which find perfect balance here with a significant alcohol content and an underlying softness obtained by the excellent technique of aging in barrels: the choice of the large cask, and the perfect calculation of the timing for its use, in fact allows the tertiary sensations to emerge to complete and refine the tasting experience without ever obscuring the aromatic characteristics of the grapes.
