This full-bodied red is visually dark and concentrated.
In the mouth, it is round with excellent persistence. Principal
notes of spice with blueberry and blackberry jam and an
undertone of rose. A structured wine with tame velvety
tannins and a long and pleasurable finish. The vineyards are located in the communities of Neive and
Treiso. After stalk removal and grape pressing, comes a
traditionally long fermentation and maceration with frequent
pinch-down and pump-ups. Maturation in barriques for
24 months, after which the wine is blended and finally
"Sleek, silky and harmonious, this exudes purity and precision. Medium-bodied, this sports cherry, rose, licorice and spice aromas and flavors. Shows terrific balance, with well-integrated tannins and a long, spice-filled aftertaste." -Rated 94, Wine Spectator
