Aroma: Beautiful hints of black cherry, violets, spices and vanilla.
Taste: Full-bodied, well-structured palate with rich dark cherry and plum fruit, a touch of acidity and with smooth tannins.
Food pairing: Matches perfectly to dark meat of beef and game. It also goes very well with cheese.
Production and maturation: The grapes are pressed and fermented at 25-28 C. The wine will then rest in stainless steel tanks until a secondary fermentation is made according to the ripasso method. This is made by adding the grapeskin and yeast sediment from an Amarone wine. The wine is later put into barrels to be aged for 12 months.
