Corked bottle, 50cl, from Caffé del Corso, Osimo
Measured Final Gravity: 1016

Amber color. Aroma of sugar, some fermented honey, the grape provides just fruity hints; there is also a light oxidization and wood that adds more complexity than deception; some alcohol too finally.
The mouthfeel is semi-sweet; the mead character is very present, while the grape provides some light fruity feeling, not too evident; it has nice caramelly flavor, the alcohol provides a comforting warmth, pleasant when chilled; the final has a mild astringency, tannins possibly.
Nicely made, balanced and with a decent complexity.
