Tasting notes Deep red, almost impenetrable, a prelude to its density. A nose rich in aromas and focused on dark fruits, such as blackberries, black cherries and plums, followed by multiple layers of black pepper, liquorice, cloves, thyme, laurel leaves, hints of truffle, black chocolate and tobacco. The palate displays aromatic width, nerve and acidity. Ripe tannins come with volume and complexity. Ready to be matched with well-hung game and rich red-meat dishes.
