Grape varieties: 60% Colorino, 40% Merlot
Deep ruby red in color, with violet hues. Intense and complex, Romitorio de Santedame displays a voluptuous nose of black currant, cranberries and raspberries, highlighted by notes of clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. This impressive bouquet is echoed on the palate, where strong but velvety tannins complement the intense fruit character. Beautifully structured, the tannins, alcohol, acidity, and fruit find an ideal balance, leading to the lingering, smooth finish of coffee, hazelnuts, and mint chocolate.
Romitorio di Santedame deserves a meal worthy of its richness and complexity. Enjoy it with veal or pork pâté, Beef Wellington, a crown rack of lamb, moussaka, or roasted goose.
