Colour: Dark ruby red with purple rim.

Nose: A complex nose with aromas of ripe black forest fruits, black cherry, tobacco & medical hints with a meaty character.

Palate: Smokey hints, violet aroma & a tar character besides a dominant acidity, medium body & persistent smooth finish with hints of black pepper.Whenvtasting blackcurrant and sour cherry appear beside its vigorous tannins, supplemented by the spices given by the barrel ageing. Elegant, not fulsome wine, with nice balance.

An all-rounder, especially with black tagliatelle vongole in sepia sauce, radicchio risotto or a medium made steak.
