Sensory profile The wine greets the eye with a luminous, energy-laden purple. The nose opens to red fruits and spices, such as cassis, wild strawberry and syrupped blueberries, alongside clove and Madagascar pepper, which are unfolded in turn by warm, appealing impressions of smooth pipe tobacco and tree-wood, such as eucalyptus as cedar, all lifted by subtle hints of blossoms. This expansive aromatic complex is an inviting prelude to immediate enjoyment. The first sip reveals its hallmarks of rich depth and superb balance, with the four primary components in an animated equilibrium among themselves. A delicate vein of earthy mineral lingers on into a finish marked by a hint of tangy wild red berry.


Pairings The wine’s interplay of bouquet and palate and appreciable weight makes it a fine partner to game birds in aromatic sauces, and to mature cheeses in vegetarian preparations. It is superb with Italian pancetta and with barbecued and grilled pork and lighter meats.
