Description

Sensory impressions:

A dark, ruby red colour with garnet hues, it has a wide, complex and refined nose, with intriguingly soft and sensual notes of sour cherry jam, maraschino cherries, prunes and dried figs, forest floor, an infusion of red flowers and a strong touch of dark chocolate. A rich, powerful palate with lively tannins; its high alcohol is well balanced by an acid note, reminiscent of crunchy raspberries.

Recommended food pairings:
A few years of cellaring make it the ideal complement for the most luscious dishes of international cuisine, such as hare “à la Royale” and roast snipe, as well as recipes featuring white truffle. At a riper age, it becomes a more brooding, “meditation” wine, best savoured alone or with some ripe Castelmagno cheese.
