Tasting Note:

Classy, easy to love Larigi. The oak is more in the background than usual, even at this young stage. Really sensual and very open. The palate is characterised by wonderful ripe, really juicy fruit with a sensual, tactile feel to it. A fine-ground touch of salt adds spark and interest to the raspberry and tayberry fruits.
