Red wine with a deep colour and very intense and complex perfume; it recalls the mature fruit with a overtones of sour cherry and raspberries, spices (pepper and ginger, in particular) and, due to maturation in small wood barrels, very light cocoa and roasted coffee. In the mouth, a hint of fruit marmalade and spices dominate; its high-tannin content is perfectly balanced with the natural roundness; it is very harmonious and well structured.
Main courses with roasts, meat and poultry and foul in any form, recommended for very mature cheeses.
