Tasting Notes

Annata 2017     |     Alcool 12.50% vol

Appearance
Perfect and attractive ruby red colour reveals his brilliance and brightness.

Nose
The nose of this wine is full of fruity notes (small red fruits in the background to exalt hints of blackberry and dark cherry); perceiving fugacious and very delicate herbaceous and spicy tones (vanilla and green pepper) and a “fregul” (pinch) of vinosity that reinvigorate in a well integrated effluvium context.

Palate
Fresh and tasty in the mouth fresh, its roundness is balanced making the sip particularly interesting: well structured with a clean, fruity finish … very gratifying.

Serving suggestions
To serve along with first courses with sauces also game meat sauce, red meat in various dishes. To try with Chili, right spicy, but also, with a 5-8 months aged Montasio cheese.

Serving temperature
To be served in a warm environment, at 16-17°C. Recommended aeration after uncorking.
