Colour: a ruby-red hue, giving greater intensity without taking away any of its brightness.
Nose: intense and very deep, with unmistakeable aromatic facets; an initially ethereal impact gives way to hints of raspberry and blackberry, which are rendered more complex by a background of sweet spices (cocoa and cinnamon) and noble wood.
Taste: great character showing through dense tannins and a magnificent alcohol/tannin balance; after a full-bodied, almost chewy entry, the silky soft tannins gradually spread out into a long, round finish.
Food pairings: greater structure and body demand richer, tastier dishes, such as casseroles, braised beef in red wine, roast goose or wild boar stew. Ideal also with aged cheese like Parmigiano Reggiano or Castelmagno.
