From this vineyard, thanks to the sunny and warm exposure and the thinning of the bunches made in late summer, we obtain very ripe grapes, rich in colour and extracts; afterwards the prolonged maceration of the skins and the aging in wood enhance the characteristics of the vine giving it a pleasant, rich and long-lived wine.

deep garnet, lively, with violet reflections

Aroma:
clean, broad and intense, with notes of rose, cocoa, tobacco and vanilla

Taste:
full, harmonious, sapid, with a pleasant, persistent finish

This wine goes well with important and rich meat dishes such as roasts and wild game.
