Purgatori, DO Costers del Segre
This powerful red has a refined character overall, with a brooding core of plum sauce, dusty earth, black olive and ganache. Sinewy tannins give bold structure, with spice, mineral and wild, Mediterranean herb giving depth to the finish.
Elegant and complex nose of dark bramble and blueberry fruit. Rounded in the mouth with well-integrated wood. Tannins are in the background, as the lively acidity loads up the palate with sparkle and zing. Great stuff.
