Deep ruby red color, it has an intense, ethereal bouquet, with the licorice, crushed roses and tar, alongside heady, spicy aromas. The wine is very dry with great structure and firm ripe tannins.
In it youth try with braised beef cheeks to counteract the firm tannins. As the wine ages, it will pair with softer veal and mushroom type dishes or mushroom rissoto.
Third Party Reviews
This full-bodied red offers aromas of new leather, rose, camphor and forest berry. Firmly structured, the tight, focused palate offers dried black cherry, orange zest, licorice and tobacco set against a backbone of assertive tannins and bright acidity. Give it time to unwind and fully develop. Drink 2026–2036. Score 93, Wine Enthusiast, Sept 2020
