Skerk, Terrano, Carso 2009
A mineral quality heightens the sensation of acid and tannin. Colour and light delivered by ripe raspberry and blueberry fruit that does not feel sweet. There is a sappy note, as well as pink grapefruit and black pepper. A wine to decant before drinking. 19/20pts (96/100pts)
