Tasting notes

Ripe al Convento 2007 is an intense ruby-red with barely perceptible highlights that are almost garnet in tonality. The nose is characterised by notes of blackberry that quickly leave in their place intense and pleasant sensations of ground hazelnuts , rhubarb, and Cuban cigar; then spicy notes emerge of black pepper, cardamom and walnut, followed by fresh notes of thyme, tea leaves and juniper. Hints of underbrush and iodine. Entry on the palate is imperious, characterised by a dense and elegant structure well supported by generous, full body. The finish is merkedly long and balanced.
