Very dark ruby, sometimes impenetrable.
Deep and complex on the nose, it gives the nose a bouquet of notes of blackberry, plum and raspberry. It has a wonderful spicy and delicate scent of vanilla, cocoa, licorice.
The drink is of great character, dynamic and silky in the tannic texture and snappy in the freshness, long in the persistence. Very well balanced. Warm and satisfying.
Part for the wine ages for 12 months in fine French barriques and 3 months in bottle.
Great to go with red meat, game, quails and richly flavoured dishes.
Very good with well aged cheeses, such as parmesan, pecorino and gorgonzola.
Excellent as after-dinner or meditation wine.
