Red in colour, with hints of herbs and aromas of cherry and fresh fruit; a perfect balance between acidity and mellow fruit; fruity with optimal vinosity. This is definitely the most widespread vine in the viticultural world and adapts to a wide range of terrains and climates. In our mild area, it develops optimum fruit and lends itself to being more a fresh wine to be enjoyed upon release rather than one for aging.
Food Pairings: Gnocchi and tagliatelle with hare sauce, grilled or braised meats, cured meats like salami and fresh cheeses, as well as pizza and vegetarian fare. Serve at room temperature, or perhaps even better slightly chilled from the cellar.
