Wine Description

Intense ruby red color. On the nose, notes of ripe red fruit fuse with hints of vanilla and spice. The palate is ample, enveloping and balanced, but also deep and savory with supple and silky tannins. A wine of real character, further characterized by a long and persistent finish and aftertaste.

Food Pairings

Bistecca alla fiorentina, rack of lamb, seafood in spicy tomato sauce, veal ossobuco
