Organoleptic analysis:
this wine is made from a vineyard standing in a new plot which has been replanted with the cuttings of prephylloxera vines which are over one hundred years old. The grapes are carefully selected. The colour is ruby red with purple reflections. A long finish of ripe fruit and of torrefaction in the mouth. It is a wine of great character and it is a perfect match with game, red meat dishes and with medium seasoned cheese.
