Intense, ethereal, spicy with hints of rosehip petals, licorice, truffle. Warm, austere, full, robust and at the same time velvety and elegant. When young it is appreciated for its freshness even if with some angularity, with the refinement the wine softens and develops the warmer and spicy tertiary sensations.

Goes well with appetizers, first courses, cheeses and cured meats.
