Aromas of red fruit medley – cherry, currant and raspberry – are ripe and vibrant.
The juicy middle is ample and flavorful, lively and framed in natural acidity resolving in a long gentle finish with the finest of tannin. Beautifully balanced. This is a very versatile food wine. Charbono shows a rare combination of thorough ripeness and bright tangy acidity.
River-bank (rocky) soil creates a dark, extracted wine. Hot days and cool nights – just what Charbono loves.
