Lodola Nuova 2004 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Ruffino - Tasting Notes

our notes are based on the WSET Systematic Approach to tasting:


clear bright, medium intensity ruby red at core, breaking at rim, with some legs


clean, youthful, medium (-) intensity aromas of fruits of the forest, black cherries, some vanilla


dry with a medium (+) acidity, low tannin, medium (+) alcohol level, medium (-) body, medium (-) intensity flavours as nose.  short lenght.  feels sharp and thin on the palate, somewhat unbalanced.  calls for food, will food compensate?


acceptable, barely.  although of an acceptable quality, a disappointment.  feels thin and sharp, not much complexity and a disapointing finish. drink now, if at all.
