montepulciano 85%, cabernet sauvignon 8%, merlot 7%
Colour: Intense ruby red verging on garnet as it ages.
Aroma: Deep lingering scents of pulpy fruit such as blackberries, black currant, and cherries along with a hint of licorice and graphite. Slight balsamic nuances complete the complex and persistent aromatic bouquet.
Palate: Austere and elegant, of strong impact and great follow-through. A still and decisive character marked by fine, smooth, and corpulent tannins. Pleasantly lingering fruity finish.
Ideal with main courses of meat, it is magnificent on a nice leg with aromatic herbs.
