Tasting Notes

A deep garnet red colour with violet hues. An intense aroma, particularly fruity when the wine is young, with hints of red fruits and undergrowth, spices, coffee and bitter chocolate. A good alcohol content, a full-structured wine with some residual sugar that gives the wine a sweet, velvety, warm, embracing, elegant, intense taste with a very long aromatic persistence and with evident hints of fruit jam and vanilla.

Food pairings

Dry, chocolate or spicy desserts, bitter chocolate, dried fruit, mustards, cheeses, foie gras.
