A deep garnet red colour. On the nose it has an intense aroma with evident hints of black cherries and cherries, with peculiar notes given by the drying process. The presence of spicy scents of dark chocolate and tobacco is characteristic as well as the appearance of “goudron” notes due to ageing. On the palate, it is a generous, velvety and persistent, highly-extracted wine with a well-balanced alcohol content and a particularly intense mineral hint, typical of this wine.
Rich dishes, grilled, roasted, braised red meats, game, extra mature cheeses. Great wine for meditation.
