Tasting Notes

Annata 2017     |     Alcool 12.0% vol

Brilliance and clearness of this wine well expressed as a corollary of an intensive Ruby red with purple highlights.

The visual notes, of this young wine, are confirmed by hints of fresh fruit (small fruits especially red-rasp- berry, cherry), with delicate notes of freshly cut grass and streams of transparent spiciness (green and white pepper).

Tasting denotes a good correspondence with nose, confirming the fruitiness (raspberry and cherry with addition of plum ashes red Amolo). Fresh wine, well managed tannins, adequate structure and beautiful persistence. Suggesting a correct aeration of this wine, we denote already the excellent drink.

Serving suggestions
Although dedicated to meat dishes of farmyard animals or beef but also horse meat, it is a wine for the whole meal.

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

Annata 2015     |     Alcool 13.5% vol

Crystal clear and bright in an elegant ruby red finish with vivid borders and natural transparencies.

Intense notes of red and black fruit flavours are dominating (raspberry, plum, blackberry) which perfectly complement the balsamic scents of the ageing woods.

With good structure, fruity, convincing for its nose-palate correspondence, its full body and discreetly fine tannin level that gives it life. Although still evolving, already extremely enjoyable.

Serving suggestions
Recommended serving with red meat or medium mature flavourful cheeses.

Serving temperature
