Never a vertical tasting without surprises: in the beginning this wine appeared to have had it. Yellowish-golden color and a very watery thin appearance. The nose presented itself with a medicinal note and a fairly strong Madeira-Touch. Overripe. The mouth was floral with a tiny, light aftertaste. Not pleasant. At first I wanted to get rid of it, but after 2 hours in the glass the wine was borne again: more complexity and intensity and the structure became more integrated. Never give up!
