la "Bella"

LA BELLA
1968
Available in other Vintages upon request

Color: Deep amber with green reflections, brillant and clear.

Scent :: very agreeable and rich ; one might comment on the lingering aroma of toasted cacao, vanilla, rancio and prunes.

Tasting: the flavor is clear, with a certain fullness and balance, the ? ? (tanins) are very rich and carry suppleness. The presence of alcohol, although rich, gives this " water of life " volume and avoids softness ; the immedite aftertaste is of rancio then of cinnamon and liquorice ; the taste persists in the mouth.

La Bella agrees well with a lemon pie and a cigar at the end of a meal. .

Scent :: simple, with hints of fern, after inhalation there is an intense aroma of violet.

Tasting: Taste : The flavor is clear and balanced. The ? ? are already rich and of high quality ; the rather rich alcoholic sensation gives this " water of life " all its greatness in the aftertaste, rather typical of older wines involving the flavor of rancio

la 'Classique'

color: dark maroon with green reflections

Scent :: Right away the odor or ? ? (rancio) spice and of toasted coffee comes to mind, followed by dried flowers.
