Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Beautiful ruby red with light garnet hue.

Aroma

Warm, with delicate notes of red berries, reminiscent of blueberry and cherry, followed by a spicy, balsamic note and vanilla notes.

Palate

The wine is full on the palate, soft, warm and harmonious. The velvety tannins are barely noticeable and disappear quickly, it has good persistence. During the aftertaste phase, spicy and balsamic notes, as well as pleasant light liquorice notes.

Food Matching

Ideal with all grilled, barbecued or braised red meats, including venison. The wine matches very well with meaty lasagne, moussaka, ragù Bolognese, spicy risotto and Indian curries. Also very nice with seasoned mature hard or soft creamy herby cheeses.
