BRU de Verdu 2010
Bru Verdu 2010 is a blend of Ull de Llebre, Syrah and Merlot . After de-stemming and crushing, maceration and fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks. After a gentle pressing it rests on American and Hungarian oak, ageing for 6 months. Dark cherry color with garnet rim. Clean and bright. Slow and slightly tinted tears. It has a clean and intense nose with outstanding very fruity aromas, ripe black fruit and licorice intermixed with subtle spices and lightly toasted. Mild vegetables and balsamic background appears after a while. The entry is powerful, fleshy and dry, marked by intense roasted notes, light spices and a delicate mineral touch. Good acidity that refreshes and distinctly tannic. Persistent finish that leaves roasted and fruity sensations.
That’s it and that’s that…., if you are hoping for more, check back tomorrow! Have a great evening!
