Intense ruby red with intense garnet reflections. The bouquet is ample and elegant and surprises the senses with long balsamic and floral notes, accompanied by important spices like black pepper, notes of currants and small berries. It is enveloping on the palate, delicate, very well balanced between soft, velvety tannins and savoury, mineral notes. Very persistent flavour. It goes well with roast Chianina beef, Fiorentina steak, game stews, but also with first courses with game ragout, which are the natural accompaniment to this wine, which requires equally noble flavours.
