From the vine to the glass, this wine is the result of painstaking, devoted work and of a genuine approach perfectly in harmony with the fundamental rules of nature. Here, a certain idea of kindliness becomes a reality each day… It has a superb opaque ruby colour, dark in the depth and deep purple on the surface. A powerful, complex nose, on scents of crystallised red and black fruit. A spicy and fresh hint appears after swirling the wine. On the palate, the first taste is pure and full. The wine is fleshy, concentrated, with a good tannic structure. The tannins are both powerful and coated. The final is fresh, long and very aromatic. This is a wine that will become more delicate after a few years. It will be very pleasant served with succulent or simply roasted meats, like lamb shoulder, duck breast or thick rib steak, and as it ages, with braised or stewed meat, such as a traditional dish of beef and wine casserole. Drinking from 2020. Its structure ensures an ageing period of 8 to 10 years.
