A sumptuous wine for refined French and Italian cuisine based on meat, including game and poultry. The wine goes well with matured cheeses.
The wine is deep purple in color with deep ruby highlights and blackish intensity.
The wine has a rich, complex aroma with tones of cherry, anise, iris flowers, black fruits, almonds, cranberries, strawberries, spices, resin, leather and licorice.
The taste of the wine is energetic, dense, well-balanced, refined, very multi-layered, with a strong structure, notes of crushed raspberries, Maraschino cherry, cinnamon and star anise, framed by fine-grained, silky tannins and a long aftertaste.
