TASTING NOTES

Art at its best. With a captivating ruby red color, La Piu Belle 2012 is an elegant, voluptuous and scented blend. Its Cabernet Sauvignon heart joins delicately with black fruit aromas, such as blackberry or dried plums, and flowers as violet and lavender given by the Syrah, highlighted by those characteristic fresh spices from the Carménère. Besides this sweet aromatic complexity, we have notes of 24-month in new barrel, where aromas of mocha and coffee, along with dried fruit discretely show themselves and transform this nose into an infinite festival of elegance and pleasure. An incredibly attractive mouth with a fresh, soft and silky attack, with a touch of minerality presenting velvety tannins with a long end and a delicate acidity. Elegant and balanced, La Piu Belle 2012 is the reflection of modern wine- making art, generating an experience worthy of being shared at all times.
