Sensory profile The wine greets the eye with a deep, intense ruby red with garnet highlights. The nose initially releases impressive draughts of fruit and blossoms, resolving into dark fig marmalade and redcurrant, eucalyptus and cyclamen. A smooth, well-integrated spiciness hints at clove and Madagascar pepper. Overall, the bouquet is remarkably elegant. On entry, the immediate impression is of a superb liqueur wine. All of the components on the palate are well-proportioned and perfectly in place, yielding a wine that is dry, warm, and sweet-bitterish. Its considerable alcohol and superb fruit convey at the same time both intensity and overall harmony, bolstered by a smooth, fine-grained tannin that fuels a lengthy finish infused with heady notes of almond liqueur.


Pairings Enjoy it sipped by itself, but superb as well with the finest dishes of Italian and international cuisine that feature succulent, long-cooked meats.
