Sensory profile

An appealing, deep ruby red. Fragrances on the nose range from black berryfruit through balsamic nuances at the end. The wine opens mouthfilling and rich, supported by an opulent suite of tannins that promise exciting maturity; the finish is marked by an ultra-rich complexity of spice, vanilla, black liquorice, and tobacco leaf. A magnificent sensory experience.

 

Serving suggestions

Roast partridge on mushrooms, fillet in red wine with shavings of formaggio di fossa, breast of guinea-fowl stuffed with foie gras, stewed venison.

 

Serving temperature18-20°C. Open the bottle an hour before serving, and decant.
