Dry and fresh in the attack. Good volume and structure harmonized by notes of red fruits and spices to give a long and pleasant finish.
It goes well with strong cheeses, red meats and smokehouses. We suggest decanting the wine before serving.
Elegant and with good intensity. In evidence are the aromas reminiscent of ripe red fruits and slight notes of forest wrapped in fine notes from the wooden stage that add complexity to the set.
