Azienda Clerico Massimo Lessona Reserva, 2013, 750ml
Luminous, very translucent and quite pale raspberry red color with a brick-orange hue. Dry and very restrained nose with subdued, fine-tuned aromas of raspberries, some wild strawberry, a little bit of sun-baked stone, light earthy spices and a light yet distinctive hint of spicy red apple. The wine is light-to-medium-bodied, very acid-driven and bone-dry on the palate with somewhat lean overall feel. Crunchy flavors of cranberries, sour cherries, some stony minerality, a little bit of leathery funk, light tart notes of dark forest fruits, a hint of game and a touch of rowanberry.
