Information


First Vintage

1987


Tasting Note

A deep ruby red in color, on the nose it offers intense scents of ripe cherries and plums, which give way to lightly floral and ethereal aromas. On the palate it is full-bodied and well-structured. The soft tannins enhance the richness of the fruit, which is nicely balanced by the tangy and persistent finish.


Serving Suggestions

Its roundedness and good body make it ideal for rich, intensely flavored dishes like stews, braised meats, game or red meats. It is als excellent with hard, very mature cheeses, perhaps with jams to accompany them.

Appassimento

The selected grapes are placed onto traditional Arele and then left to rest for minimum 110 days in a large dedicated open room, where a ventilation system mantains an elevated and constant air flow. During this period the grapes are constantly checked since we want to keep them perfectly healthy, without any mildew.
