Organoleptic description

The color is ruby red with violet veins, intense and dark. The nose combines the classic fruity notes of the grape variety with singular and captivating balsamic and menthol notes. In the mouth, the wine is ample, soft, highly enjoyable and storable, powerful and elegant at the same time. Very long and consistent finish, with precise aftertaste hints. It stands the test of time perfectly, as can be appreciated in 8-10 year old versions.

Suggested serving temperature: 14-15° C
