The color of the wine displays an intense vibrant ruby red, with a
bouquet which shows aromas of flowers and berries, with hints of vanilla
and a touch of rosebud.
On the palate the wine is full-bodied and very concentrated, with big, chewy tannins
and a long, powerful finish. Loaded with fruit and layered with impressive concentration.
The wine has the ability to evolve for 25-30 years.
The wine pairs ideally with grilled food, sauced and elaborate red meat as well as wild game.
"Good full red. Highly nuanced nose melds redcurrant, menthol, truffle, marzipan, dried flowers and spicy oak. Then sweet, creamy and surprisingly open-knit, with very good depth and complexity to the flavors of strawberry and dried flowers. The floral quality and an herbal element give lift to this very fresh wine. Rivetti told me he carried out three green harvests in 2005, which allowed him to bring in fully ripe fruit before the damaging early October rains."
