TASTING NOTES

The nose offers a broad and complex profile of floral scents, with hints of rose and violet. Fruity sensations, with notes also of balsamic liquorice, tobacco and leather.

On the palate it stands out for its warmth, for a tannin often marked as a sign of youth, notes of sapidity and acidity, which close in a finish of delicate persistence. As time goes by, tannins have an evolution that "rounds up" the gustatory profile, making it even softer and more elegant.

At the highest levels, it wants to be savored alone! It is incomparable with game dishes, excellent with truffle-based dishes also with aged cheeses.
