Mild and rainy end of winter and anticipated spring with temperatures above seasonal average. Generous rainfalls at the end of May and beginning of June assured a good supply of water to the vines; high temperatures during summer allowed a perfect ripening of grapes ensuring an excellent harvest as for quality ; quantities instead suffered a reduction of 10% compared to previous years.
TASTING NOTES & PAIRINGS
Very deep ruby; releases remarkably emphatic fragrances of ripe berry fruit, spice, cocoa powder, and tanned leather. Very full in the mouth, lean in character but with warm alcohol and ripe, juicy tannins. Ideal partner to mixed grills, game, dishes with mushrooms or truffles, and aged cheeses.
