The judgment of the sommelier
Deep ruby with a remarkable colour mass. Bright purple reflexes. Intense and sophisticated on the nose. Red ripe fruits like currant, blackberries, and cherries. A well outlined note of violet. Spices in succession, primarily vanilla, black pepper, and coffee. It expresses itself with remarkable correspondence offering a fraught sip that leaves the mouth clean, thanks to a truly protagonist freshness and to the not intrusive tannins. A note of very pleasant liquorice closes this beautiful taste. An averagely persistent wine that we would match with “lasagne” or with guinea fowl cooked in the embers “al coppo”.
