Tasting notes

This Riserva offers a beautiful and bright ruby-red; intense with highlights of garnet. Emphatic notes of dark-fleshed fruits are the first to emerge on the nose including wild blackberry, redcurrant, plum and blueberry followed bytoastier impressions of vanilla, sweet tobacco leaf and roasted espresso bean. Fresh notes appear at the finish with hints of eucalyptus. The palate is balanced, soft and warm with dense and elegant tannins that blend well in the structure and are supported by a lovely acidity. The finish is long and persistent with notes of ripe fruit. Serving suggestions: Stews, plates of slowly cooked meats and aged cheeses.
