Boca 2015 Carlone Davide
There are people who can not sit still and keep to themselves. Full of youthful energy, they like to crack jokes and get everyone to laugh. This Boca reminds us of these characters. It is young, full of energy like the volcanic soil it grows on, and oh-so easy to like! As with the other Carlone reds, there is a great concentration of aromas, among them fresh fruit. Youthful flavours, which directly hit the nose, stand out. In the mouth there is already a certain balance between acidity and tannins. Strawberry and blackberry, pomegranate, liquorice, cocoa, violet dominate. Then comes tobacco, which is completed in the finish by rough leather. We carefully aged it in our cellar knowing, that it will become even better. It is good that we leave time to time to perfect all this great potential!
