Toasty oak, subtle herbal spice and coffee grounds on the nose. Youthful and vibrant. Grounded by gorgeous long acidity, mouthwatering and crunchy. Youthful, firm, grippy chalky tannins. Crunchy, moreish, nutty. I'm really surprised by how young and cool-climate barely ripe this seems - the acidity is vibrant and energetic, the fruit is redcurrant fresh, gently floral, but oh-so-beautiful. I'd give a slight edge to the Montosoli if I had to pick one.
