Rich ruby red, with subtle purplish highlights. The bouquet offers pleasant notes of wild red berry fruits, such as wild cherry and blueberry, which then yield to a peppery amalgam of baker’s chocolate and black liquorice. The palate is warm and silky, displaying crisp fruit with dense-packed, supple tannins, while the finish seems almost endless. Perfect with full-flavored pasta dishes or light meat stews, as well as sautéed beef with vegetables and medium-aged cheeses.
