Winemaker's Notes:

Deep garnet color, with perfectly mixed floral and spicy qualities in the nose. Notes of licorice, cherries in liqueur, cacao and fresh raspberries. Rich, full-bodied and elegant on the palate.

This is an aristocratic wine that finds its ideal match in game, jugged hare, braised beef, chamois, roe buck saddle, wild boar, venison, and pigeon. Superb with dishes garnished with white truffles from Alba, like cardoon flan with fonduta and duck ravioli.
