2018 Südtirol / Alto Adige DOC Merlot-Cabernet Riserva "Cornelius", Alto Adige, Italy

Somewhat smoky and a hint of meaty-animal nose of blackcurrants, a little dried tomato and black olives with dried marjoram and oregano in the background as well as tobacco and smoky nuances. Ripe, tightly knit dark fruit, smoky and toasty wood notes, some tobacco, smoke and peppery hints, good persistence and substance, again a trace of marjoram in the background, minty ethereal notes, some depth, still young, very good, taut, tangy and ethereal-spicy finish with nutty and smoky tones.
