Tasting notes: Alba de Domus 2010
Deep and intense ruby garnet with purple shades.
The nose is a bit closed at the very beginning, with some organic whispers. Then rises the sweet spicy side joined buy tobacco, incense, stones and herbs. The fruit is ripe and a bit candied at the same time, bringing black currants, plums, blackberries and cherries.
Dried fruits and balsamic tones also come along some kind of sweetness at this moment of the evolution but the main and true personality is here, waiting behind. The palate offers a wide juicy attack, that quickly become more structured, tightened by fine but firm tannins, needing time to get more polished. Potential and power are the main attributes for now, even if elegance will of course be part of the whole concept in a couple of years. The finish, with its wild berries and oriental spices is a confirmation of all, still asking for time because of its tannic essence.
