A luminous, lively ruby in appearance. A vibrant, richly-layered nose, clean-edged and crisp, with a notably mineral character. Leather, black liquorice, and dried leaves, compose a rich medley of aromas, enlivened by black pepper, pencil lead, tobacco leaf, mixed spice, and star anise.
Castiglione Falletto, Italy
The palate exhibits abundant succulent fruit, smooth and well rounded, contributing to a dense,
velvety mouthfeel; a firm, sturdy structure is bolstered by tannins that are lively and emphatic but never aggressive. Serving suggestions: Pot roasts with Barolo, red meat and game, stuffed guinea fowl, seasoned cheeses.
