Notes

The nose, somewhat subdued at the start, suggested grappa and light fruitiness (blackcurrant pastilles, orange barley water) before arriving at sweet marzipan, icing sugar and chocolate hazelnuts, with pepper, liquorice, ginger and humbugs to finish. The palate had tart fruits (damson, plum, crème de cassis, Kir Royal) with marmalade on toast, honey and a late kick of pepper, clove and ginger-nuts. The reduced nose wandered to a saw-mill by a swimming pool – the palate’s liquorice and blackcurrant and Turkish Delight, was refined and gentle, but with sustaining warmth and attractive qualities. This make has long been very popular in Italy.
