description: a strikingly brilliant ruby in appearance, very luminous. The nose, heady and generous, releases complex varietal aromas, with
pungent notes of autumn leaves and spice well in evidence, complemented by nuances of tanned leather, liquored dried plum, black liquorice,
and cocoa powder. The palate develops impressive fruit, bolstered by a solid charge of tannins that will become supple with bottle ageing. A
lively acidity drives a lengthy finish well laced with savoury, succulent fruit. Serving suggestions: Pot roasts with Barolo, red meat and game,
stuffed guinea fowl, first courses featuring meat or mushrooms.
