Mi Terruno Limited Reserve Petit Verdot
A bold yet cultured red that is just built for meat. It has a deep ruby red hue with touches of violet at the rim. The bouquet is complex with ripe plums foremost against black raspberry and mocha. Every time you go back to it the bouquet changes as the complexity develops. In the mouth it is smooth yet robust with velvety tannins and a nutty edge from the barrel maturation. A great bottle!
