The wine is deep cherry red in colour with gentle evolution of the color at the rim.
The nose is intensely aromatic and shows a perfect balance of balsamic notes and sweet spices from the barrel ageing process with forest fruits, berries and liquorice that remind us of the Mediterranean.
The palate is velvety and dense marked by soft, fine tannins and by a long and fruity finish, revealing the elegance of a traditional wine.
Roundness and balance make this wine perfect for pairing with cheese, red meat, game and oily fish, or even to be enjoyed simply in good company.
