CHARACTER AND STYLE
The wine colour is pleasant intense ruby marked by some brown shades. The
deep nose shows its personality made of ripped red and black fruits, closed
aromas of soil and humus and the traditional game notes. In the mouth, in its
youngest life, the wine is strict concentrate and deep. The palate is rich and
masculine. Natural tannins are very present (but never desiccating) spices
together with the ripe fruits, beautiful and long aftertaste. This is a wine that
you have to decant very young or to discover knowledge with patience.
AGEING AND SERVICE
To keep 10-15 years. Temperature of service: 14-15°C
Young, this wine goes very well with any roasted meats and poultry (duck
breast, leg of lamb, roasted beef) and of course the traditional cheeses. After a
few years, it will be advised, successfully, with all simmered and cooked
meats, game birds and generally the great traditional food.
