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