2016 Majoli, Ruche di Castagnole Monferrato DOCG, Dacapo, Piedmont
Red and garnet like a Nebbiolo. Attractive nose of rose hip, violet, strawberry and spicy. On the palate, it is delightful and elegant like a Pinot Noir, with hints of pepper and spice on the finish. - DECO tasting team
The wine is pale in colour, with fruity, floral aromatics and some spice. It is also light on the palate, with soft acids and silky tannins, and comparable to Pinot Noir. Forward, fruity nose with raspberry and perfumed floral notes. Medium-bodied, with light fruit intensity, balanced tannins and a clean, refreshing finish. An attractive, easy-drinking wine, with simple fruits. Clean and pure. - Sarah Wong, HK-based wine writer (SCMP, 20 April 2018)
