Oak aging (with 25% new French barrel) has helped shape sweet aromas of vanilla and exotic spice backed by loads of cherry and ripe forest berry. Characteristic aromas of violets, wet earth and graphite appear at the back and the wine is firm, thick and smooth on the close. Consider long cellar aging: 10 years or more.
The Cottá expression is slightly less intense than Fausoni and has a sharper, edgier character overall. The aromas are precise and focused, including forest berry, bramble and white chocolate. The wine feels broad and rich in the mouth and ends with firm, drying tannins.
