Weather conditions were crucial during the entire vine cycle, which fortunately developed with no relevant incidences or extreme weather events with the exception of some merely testimonial plagues or diseases.

This wine has a great personality. Deep red-cherry color with cardinal rim. Great aromatic complexity, with outstanding well-ripe dark fruits (blackcurrant) aromas, dried plumbs notes, all this well integrated with refined spicy notes (cloves and cinnamon) and cacao, from its rest in french oak barrels. Silky, delicate and intense on the palate, with lingering and elegant finish.
Meat and smoked fish. Red meat, truffle dishes, hard cheese.
