Appearance: Garnet red colour with variable intensity depending on the vintage. Bouquet: The grapes come from different subzones in Serralunga and this gives them a broad and variable spectrum of perfumes, ranging from tempting spicy notes to those of a sweeter, floral and fruity nature. Flavour: A variety of sensations, with a full-bodied, classic and well structured wine which ages well and perfectly represents the important character of our land. Food Pairings: It achieves its best expression when served with red meats, particularly game, and with dishes dressed with truffle. It is also excellent with fresh egg pasta and meat sauce, and with risotto, as well as medium-mature cow's milk and goat's milk cheeses.

Wine EnthusiastBeguiling scents of fragrant berry, rose petal, baking spice, new leather and aromatic herbs swirl around in the glass. The vibrant palate is loaded with finesse, doling out morello cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and star anise, while polished tannins and bright acidity provide impeccable balance. It's just gorgeous and while it's already accessible, it also shows midterm aging potential.

Wine SpectatorOffers alluring aromas of sweet, ripe cherry and berry, rose and truffle. Firms up on the palate, yet expands the range of flavors, adding leather, iron and underbrush notes. Finishes on the burly side, but should repay aging. Fine length. Best from 2020 through 2033. 5,200 cases made.
