Description

Why we love it
A great-value Italian red – well structured and fresh in style with tart black-fruit flavours.

Tasting notes
Intense ruby red in colour. On the nose, an intense bouquet with notes of rose, raspberry, sour black cherry, blackberry and red plum. Well structured and juicy on the palate with light tannins.

Food pairing
Pair with rich red-meat dishes, mushroom or root-vegetable dishes, or blue cheeses.

Additional information
The freshly harvested grapes were destemmed, pressed and placed in vats at a temperature of 18°C for three days to bring out their varietal aromas. Fermentation took place at a temperature of 26°C, followed by a six-to-eight-day period of maceration. Once malolactic fermentation had taken place, the wine was aged for 12 months in small oak barrels, part new and part used.
