2007 Damjanić «Borgonja barrique» – Gamay

Gamay again, but now aged in oak barrels that makes it more complex and of bigger structure. Nice floral aroma of dry violets and roses in the nose, with some cherry and pomegranate, but bouquet becomes dirtier, and more appealing, when you discover the notes of wet forest soil and graphite. Juicy fruits in the mouth, the passage in the wood brought nice roundness that is perfectly balanced with resolute acids and exciting tannins. The finish is moderately long, again with great minerality that effectively cleans your mouth (so that you ask for another sip). The medium to medium-full body of this wine can get along with thick game meat goulash, roasted red meats, pasta al forno, tuna (or other red meat fish) prepared in umido. This is my favorite Damjanić’s wine and I can’t wait to see how it will evolve in a year or two.
