Tasting Notes:
Red berry, grilled herb, mint and anise aromas lead the way. The palate brings succulent dark berry, vanilla, white pepper, toast and pipe tobacco alongside firm, fine-grained, refined tannins. A note of roasted coffee bean signals the close.

Temperature-controlled in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged in big barrels and barriques for 12/15 months

In red, with emerged cap and maceration on the skins for 6/7 days at a controlled temperature of 26° C. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in full after the alcoholic one is completed.

Food Pairing :  It is ideal with grilled foods, white and red meats, and medium aged cheeses.
