Appears an intense ruby red. The bouquet releases fragrance of ripe fruit, with dried plum and cherry backed by hints of spice. Well-rounded and smooth on the palate, it exhibits superb depth and weight, and a delicious, full-flavoured finish. The wine’s richness and supple tannins make it a fine partner to roasts and grills of meat and game, as well as aged cheeses.

Beef strips with shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano; ricotta and spinach-filled ravioli with porcinis and truffles.
Fill the glass one-third full, then hold the glass at an angle against a white background to bring out all its colours. Swirl the wine slowly, stop, calmly breathe in the aromas. Then slowly swirl the wine again, and breathe in, at various moments.
Sip the wine, keeping some of it in our mouth so that the taste buds and palate can capture all the flavours, intensity, and fragrances.
