Very bright crimson.
Opulent, glossy bouquet with layers of small dark cherries, licorice, leafy herbs and chocolate.
The palate is more reserved: saturated tannins, a little chewiness on the entry but suppler towards the finish. The whole is balanced, sapid and suggests that this wine was skillfully produced.
Aged 25% to 40% new French oak barrels for between 16 to 18 months.
Excellent with any kind of meat, especially Florentine steak, veal with mushrooms and mature cheeses.
