The Notes of the Sommelier: The wine is limpid, intense ruby ​​red with garnet reflections. A dried-flowers potpourri, marasca cherries in spirit and candied orange peel immediately come out of the glass; followed by spices, underwood hints, and a final touch of licorice, and cocoa. The mouthfeel is full, satisfying, with a smooth tannic texture and a long dry finish.

Food and wine pairings: Perfect for complementing aged cheeses, or a juicy Florentine steak; it will delight the most demanding palates when paired with a classic “coda alla vaccinara” – roman oxtail stew - or with a Sicilian caponata topped with dark chocolate flakes.
