2020 Svizzeria Italiana IGT Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon Blanc de Noir "Solaris", Tessin/Ticino, Switzerland

Bottle image in HD without watermark

Slightly open, somewhat nutty to woody, vegetal to dried herbal and mushroomy scent of yellow fruits with a hint of peppers and orange blossom. Firmly knit, bright fruit with nuances reminiscent of marzipan and tobacco, lively acidity, has grip and some persistence, barrel wood in the background, which becomes clearer with air, hints of tomatoes and morels, chalky minerality, very good, if slightly perfumed finish.
