Very deep color, ruby to garnet, rich, fruity and persistent bouquet of rose petals, brushwood and berries - particularly blackberries; full-bodied, luscious, round and mellow, with an ideal balance of acidity and tannins. Wonderful with meat-based second courses and seasoned cheeses; the producer suggests pairing it with a typical Piedmontese dish called cacciatora chicken.

Wine SpectatorBursting with cherry, raspberry and licorice aromas and flavors, this pretty red is not without density, with dusty tannins and bright acidity keeping it focused. Offers fine balance and length, with a licorice and spice aftertaste. Best from 2014 through 2027.
