Sensory profile: It’s a limpid wine with a deep ruby color with some purple highlights and a good consistency. The beauty and incense fragrance is characterized by a pot-pourri of dried flowers and a mixed berries jam. Balsamic, it presents a spicy note of green pepper and tomato leaf, followed by notes of white chocolate and vanilla. The tannins are very elegant and rounded. It is characterized by a good freshness and mineral salts, intense, persistent in mouth and ready to drink.
Suggestions: It’s a perfect wine for aperitif but also for meditation. Excellent also for all medium complexity and fatness dishes like lasagna, red grilled meat or wild game.
