SIERMA – PRIMITIVO IN PUREZZA
2018 YEAR – 1300 BOTTLES
Shining, concentrated ruby mantle. A very pure nose, sketched on the gentle features of the terroir: black cherry, swirling ensemble of wild fruits, mint tobacco and myrtle, a hint of rhubarb and juniper berries. It has explosive personality on the palate, where the flavour expands unrestrainedly, enriching itself with notes of potpourri and marine scrub, in a growing progression marked by creamy tannins and a finish of disarming roundness. Extremely long persistence, to open applause.
