In the glass the sample is limpid, garnet red in color, brilliant, with a good consistency.
The olfactory profile is broad and complex. Floral notes of red mountain flowers, followed by hints of small red fruits. Scent of licorice, wild juniper, notes of pine resin, aromatic mountain herbs and a hint of white pepper.
The taste is fresh, inviting, with silky and perfectly harmonious tannins. The drink is very pleasant, with a flavor that invites a new sip, persistent with an aftertaste of noble spices.
It is recommended in combination with a braised boar and polenta.
