Ruby red, with grenade reflections. The nose is rich and ample; it expresses itself with dominant hints of ripe red fruits and spices. On the palate it is full-bodied and soft, with fine and well integrated tannins and a very long persistence.
Excellent in combination with structured dishes, it is ideal with red meat and game.
