Sensory impressions

A clear and brilliant ruby red colour with violet undertones, it has a delicately vinous nose with distinctive notes of red flowers, raspberry, maraschino cherries, liquorice root, forest floor and snuff: a delightful, harmonious bouquet whose most enticing virtue is its great spontaneity. The palate has a crunchy acidity, quite pleasant and dynamic, with balanced alcohol and tannins; the finish is very clean, with an appealing hint of bitterness.

Serving temperature

14-16° C.

Recommended food pairings

At a young age, it is best served at a temperature of 14° C in medium-sized glasses, paired with stewed veal or filet mignon with green peppercorn cream sauce. When riper, it should be savoured at a slightly higher temperature (16° C), with roasted beef, beef stew or semi-ripe cheese, such as a tasty pecorino. 

Longevity

3 years.
