On the road

Me and my better half is in Norrköping today, and we are just back at the hotel after visting a nice Italian restaurant. With the foie gras pate we had a glass of Taittinger Brut - nice enough but it had a coarse feature (84p). But with the stunning beef filet we had a great bottle of

2004 Tignanello
A deep, fine, complex nose with notes of sugared coffee, red and black cherries, licorice and a warm Tuscan gravelly road. Still young but there is some maturity notes that comes through. Sandelwood and lingonberries bushes after a while. Very, very good.
The taste is fresh, full of cherry flavour and with a great structure. Notes of black cherries, dark chocolate and leather fills the taste with character. The finish is fresh and structured with a nice acidity. A lovely wine!
94p (tasted 2012/03)
