Tasting notes

Barbera grapes 100%.

A purple, dark but radiant color.

Spicy notes of cinnamon and tamarind, ripe and macerated red fruit, licorice and black cherry, to make your head spin around.

Silky, linear mouth: fresh and fleshy taste, structured to the right point.

Important second courses of meat, to keep up with its strength. Pigeon or duck breast, Tuscan croutons and terrines.

Service temperature : 17-18 °C
