TASTING SUGGESTION BY VALTER BOSIO
Tasting impression: Intense garnet red, ample and elegant bouquet delicately spiced, with hints of flowers and small red fruits. On the palate, an opulent structure buoyed by soft tannins, overlaid with ripe fruit and liquorice. Extraordinary ageing capacity.
Tasting temperature: 18°C
Meal coupling: Perfect in combination with red meat and furred game dishes, but also very rich fish dishes, such as baked turbot, as well as with fine cheeses.
