In this area, the renowned Bordeaux grape variety has found a particularly fine environment for the production of wines with great character and personality, as long as the vineyards have high-density planting and great care and attention are devoted to the wine during every single phase of production.
The wine has a bright, deep ruby red color, which is almost purple when young. Its bouquet is broad and persistent, fine and elegant, with hints of ripe cherries and plums against a background of vanilla and violets. On the palate, it is dry, well-balanced, velvety and fullbodied, with tannins that are well integrated with the wine’s appealing freshness.
It goes very well with pasta dishes with strongly flavored sauces, roast red meats or mature cheeses.
