2015 has been one of what we name “grande annata.” Spring saw rain until the middle of April, followed by days of sun and a few more nights of rain. It has been warm without being too hot. The grapes didn’t burn and were near perfect in 95% of the quantity.
Dark ruby-red in color with garnet shades. Intense and elegant aromas of ripe fruit, raisins and spices with vanilla, tobacco, cocoa and anise. Persistent, warm flavors, velvety and harmonious. This is a wine for meditation — a protagonist on its own. It is traditionally paired with game, grilled beef, stew, braised meat and mature cheeses, however, the smoothness of its dry fruit allows for modern and daring pairing…have you ever tried it with raw prawns or scampi? Serve at 18 C (65 F). Open at least one hour before serving.
