The wine expresses immediately dense texture and great density in a context of impenetrable ruby red colour, with ample garnet reflections. The nose is at first intensely fruity, floral, herbaceous and toasted, with clear hints of ripe blackberry, black cherries, violet, green shoots and coffee beans. The second smell gradually opens to a complexity of sweet spices and balsamic notes: we recognize vanilla pods, pink pepper, pipe tobacco, eucalyptus. The attack in the mouth immediately reveals an intense, clean and fresh wrapping, on a warm-tannic background in excellent balance; following the opening towards a balanced flavour with pleasant, caressing and progressive silky persistence, on a juicy base of ripe blackberry. The finish is long, fresh and fruity: the sip calls for a new sip.
Excellent on red meats: roasted, braised cheeks; ideal companion of seasoned cow's cheeses.
