At first sight the deep, intense ruby red colour of the wine is striking, with small violet arches. The bouquet suggests red fruit, rose petals and hints of wet spices. It is soft and warm to the palate with notes of red prune, cherry and blueberry which are harmoniously intertwined around a lively tannic theme. Being fruit of an exceptional harvest, gives it a full, enveloping body, which finishes with liquorice and cloves. The fine performance is completed with an after-taste of black pepper and cranberry.
This wine may be drunk immediately or laid down for 5 years. It is ideal to accompany pasta timbale, lamb stew, char-grilled cod and seasoned, pecorino cheese.
Light & Fruity
Nice, simple wine. Can't see the 90 point score given above. Nose is subtle and mainly floral. Medium bodied with red cherry and plums. Finish is short but refreshing. Nice summer wine. Good with grilled burgers.
