Ruby-red wine. A complex nose with notes of plum, red berry, dried rose and violet. Its flavour is forthright, lip-smacking, with prominent, well-embedded tannins. Good length and persistence of flavour with fruity and spicy finish. A few years in the bottle will provide this wine with outstanding complexity. A wine of character for the whole meal, it is most at home with pasta dishes dressed with meat sauces and with meat-based main dish.
