Tasting Notes Deep ruby and granite red colour with an intense flavour of really ripe and even baked fruit. Full of delicate herbaceous and spicy notes as well like blackberry leaves, nutmeg, bittersweet chocolate and incense. The palate is immediately overwhelmed by the silky texture and the ripeness of the tannins, the finish is elegant, yet complex and warm, perfect match with any juicy red meat, or even on his own, after the main dish.

 

Food Pairings It could be a great “meditation” wine and a perfect pairing with local meat such a Florentine T-bone steak, wild boar and venison
