Ruby red tending to garnet. The nose flaunts rich, clean-edged toasty oak from traditional ageing, plus flowers and berries suggesting blueberries, ending with raspberry and strawberry. Full and dense in the mouth, with vigourous tannins, and a delicately spicy, full-flavoured finish.
Goes well with fillet of beef with formaggio di fossa, free-range chicken alla cacciatora, baked capon.
