Intense and bright ruby red colour with spurplish hues. It offers an intriguing bouquet, balsamic and floral, with hints of small red berries and spices. Notes of tobacco and toasted nuts. The palate is structured and fulfilling, freshly acidic, with very little space for sweetness. Vivacious tannic texture, hinting sour cherries and cocoa; fresh, clean and persistent.
Recommended food pairings:
An end-of-meal wine, it is at its best when paired with coffee desserts, shortbread, castagnaccio (a rustic chestnut pudding from Tuscany) and chocolate cakes; try it with daring pairings, like aged cheese, in peculiar Roquefort cheese.
