Bouquet this full and enveloping wine shows ethereal, fragrant and rich notes. It displays scents and nuance of cherries in brandy, mulberry jam, blueberry and
blackcurrant, humus, tobacco and ginger, black pepper and herbs.

Taste dynamic, coherent and of strong impact, it shows fascinating mineral aromas that well combine with the powerful structure of the fruit, the acidity and the pleasant and exuberant tannins

Characteristics it’s a warm and complex wine with a flighty personality, generous and vibrant, intense and concentrated, surprising while ageing.

Food matches perfect with “bucatini” in boar meat sauce, “pappardelle” in hare sauce, rigatoni “con la pajata”, pork stew, tripe rolls, stuffed meat rolls with tomato sauce, “spiedo di manzo al lardo” (spitroasted beef with lard) and tuna stew with mint. Very good with medium-seasoned cheeses.
