Piedmont Italy, DOCG - Brilliant garnet-red in colour with orange highlights. Firm, elegant and potent on the nose, it has scents of dog rose, mint and tobacco, scents which meld in the course of time into spice, coffee, liquorice, truffle, leather and minerals. A full-bodied, rounded bouquet of great structure and balance, redolent of plum jam and withered brambles. The persistent chocolaty aftertaste is harmonious and enticing. Over the years it gradually refines its characteristics to achieve classic elegance and composure.
Goes well with braised meats, stewed game, roasts and mature cheeses such as pecorino and Parmigiano Reggiano.
