Organoleptic analysis: intense ruby red colour. Intense and complex nose, with spicy black pepper and nutmeg notes and elegant balsamic nuances that blend with ripe plum, liquorice and coffee notes.  In the mouth this wine is warm, fat, opulent, but also extremely fresh and sapid, with tightly knit tannins. A long finish of ripe fruit and of torrefaction. A wine of great character to be matched with game and with great seasoned cheese.
