tasting note

With a deep cherry color and nut and red fruit aromas, this wine has firm tannins that can be austere in their youth. Can be consumed immediately, but will soften and develop with a few years of ageing.

food pairing

Pairs well with duck, squab and other poultry, especially in a thick plum sauce, and strong cheeses.
