Ruby-red wine. A complex nose with notes of plum, red berry, dried

rose and violet. Its flavour is forthright, lip-smacking, with

prominent, well-embedded tannins. Good length and persistence of

flavour with fruity and spicy finish. A few years in the bottle will

provide this wine with outstanding complexity.

A wine of character for the whole meal, it is most at home with pasta

dishes dressed with meat sauces and with meat-based main dishes.

Serving temperature: 15-17°C – serve in a fairly capacious glass to

bring out its full volume.
