Tasting Notes

 A deep garnet red colour. An intense aroma with typical scents of ripe red fruit and jam, together with typical notes given by the drying-process, evident hints of spice, coffee, dark chocolate, tobacco and notes of goudron due to ageing. A wine with medium-high alcohol content, highly-extracted and with a generous, velvety, sapid and persistent body with hints of almond, cherry jam, spices and tobacco.

Food pairings

 Rich dishes, in particular grilled, roasted, braised red meat, game and extra mature cheeses. Great wine for meditation.
