Made up of 100% Pinot Nero grapes. Sturdy but elegant and
elaborate wine. It rests for ten months in little French oak barrels.
Ruby red colour, ample and intense on nose with ripe fruits, cloves
and pepper scents. On palate it is intense, soft and persistent with
elegant and velvety tannins which make the wine pleasant and
harmonious. It goes well with cheese, red meats and with particular
fish dishes.
