The wine is of ruby red with a copper tinge. On the nose, there are intense aromas that show more than 30 months of maturation in wooden barrels. We are surprised by aromas of leather, smoke, ripe and overripe currants marmalade, white pepper, and exotic aromas of eucalyptus. The taste of the wine is rich, fresh, and slightly spicy with velvety tannins.
We recommend it with the red meat dishes, roasts. It is excellent with grilled dishes and meat in pepper sauce. It creates an excellent harmony with grilled meat dishes, Florentine steak. A remarkable combination is beef steak with truffles.
