Dense ruby.
It expresses intense and elegant olfactory notes reminiscent of black pepper, meat, ripe berries, dried fruit, black cherries and blackberries, red roses, followed by perceptions of sweet spices such as dark chocolate, cinnamon and liquorice, with an elegant and mineral graphite finish.
In the mouth it combines all these sensations in a perfectly balanced body, confirming the extraordinary, exuberant richness it shows to the nose, with silky tannins perfectly integrated in the wine and pleasant acidity, full and spicy taste of ripe red and black fruits and jam, with mineral nuances and balsamic hints. Very long and unforgettable finish.

The malolactic fermentation involves only the must flower (the wine obtained by pressing the marc is never used for the production of our wines) and takes place spontaneously, without inoculation of bacteria.
