Bright, clear hue with ruby red reflections. The intense nose reveals aromas of red and black fruits combined with a hint of truffle. Secondary aromas of spice, pepper, aniseed and mint develop on the end palate. The palate is rich and smooth with delicate tannins. This wine offers a harmonious character and a delectable, lush finish. A beautiful expression of this little-known appellation.
