"Brambly blackberry, dark raspberry, black pepper, mocha and minerals on the nose, plus a touch of reduction. Then rich, broad and almost chocolatey on the palate, offering a fine-grained texture and very good concentration to its sweet, juicy dark berry, pepper and spice flavors. This is a fairly substantial, chocolatey-ripe wine for a Michelini brother (In this case, Matías) but I'm not complaining. Harmonious acidity and salty minerality give this wine early deliciousness but there's no rush to drink it. Finishes with a broad, fine dusting of tannins and a lingering note of cocoa powder."
