Sensory impressions
A strong yet brilliant ruby red colour with garnet hues, its bold and enticing nose is wide, well balanced and refined, redolent of prunes and maraschino cherries, mixed spices (cloves) and vanilla. The structure is firm, with silky tannins caressing the palate; alcohol and freshness are extremely well balanced; the finish is long, clear, with a pleasant touch of bitterness.

Serving temperature
16-18° C.

Recommended food pairings
An ideal match for rich and succulent dishes such as braised or stewed meat, roast beef or poached fillet. It is also excellent with cheese in varying degrees of ripeness, such as mature Monte Veronese and 3-year-old Bitto.

Longevity
8 to 10 years or more, if stored on its side in a cool, dark environment.
