Colour/Taste/Aftertaste/Aroma/ Gastronomy

A young wine featuring all the variety’s aristocratic characteristics, but in a slightly detached style that makes it decidedly fragrant and tasty: an attractive, deep ruby-red colour; a powerful, fragrant nose hinting at raspberries, wild strawberries, jam and geraniums, becoming more rounded over time, as spicy and ethereal overtones are added. Despite taking the place set aside for younger wines at the table, it is unquestionably a thoroughbred, pairing equally well with meat and vegetable starters, cured meats, and fondue, through to strongly-flavoured pasta, chicken dishes - especially roasts and casseroles, and medium mature cheeses.
