Blood-red with ruby highlights, it has a clear-cut, intense nose with overtones of vanilla, spices, withered roses and underbrush.
The palate is dry, but soft, full bodied, velvety and well balanced, and is engagingly complex throughout the lengthy finish.
Ideal with big red meat dishes and medium mature cheeses, try a wild boar and mushroom risotto for example.
