Villa Katina Reserve 2020
The aroma reminds of a handful of freshly picked red forest berries, complemented by a secondary scent of cherry and delicate notes of pepper and sumac on a layer of vanilla. Our extra toasted barrels (MT+) add notes of aromatic tobacco, wood and a scent of leather to the nose. At a second inhale – soft caramel and a hint of jam.
The taste is intense and possesses a fine balance of density, fruit, astringency, durability and a long aftertaste. The acidity is moderate, bringing enough freshness without prevailing. It elegantly adds to the rich taste. The tannins are soft and velvety.
The body is powerful, yet fruity. It carries notes of musk, leather, baked goods, molasses from black fruit and oriental herbs. The aroma of the dry fraction reminds of fig leaves, orange peel jam and pine needles. If you remain longer with your glass, you may discover hints of violets and a delicate freshness.
