Winemaker's Notes

Ruby red, clean and bright. Good aromatic intensity, notes of ripe red fruit on the nose over a very elegant balsamic background. The palate is soft, cool and spirited. It has a good body and the tannins are well-integrated and polished. In the aftertaste hints of very ripe red fruit with liqueur nuances reappear making it a wine with a long finish.

Excellent with red or white meats, all types of game, roasts, oily fish, rice with meat and cheese.
