Tenuta Carretta, Bric Paradiso, Roero, Piedmont, Italy, 2010
Regional Trophy: Red Piedmont Regional Trophy
The wine has a very attractive nose with classic rose petal and dried herb notes, and young berry fruit. The palate has all the complexity and subtleties expected of the variety, dried flowers, fresh red fruits, hints of smoke, lovely dusty tannins and a hint of sweet oak in the long finish. Classical, typical and lovely.
