Powerful and nuanced, the 2016 Alteni di Brassica reaches a new level of complexity. It opens with intense spicy notes of sage, white pepper, sweet liquorice and flint. Then it evolves into its fruitier character with ripe notes of citrus, lemon peel, grapefruit, green pear and nectarine. Thanks to the bright acidity and the salinity, Alteni di Brassica 2016 retains its energy and tension, well balanced by the remarkable fruit concentration which make this wine appealing even when young.
