70% Corvina Veronese, 30% Rondinella
An intense ruby red hue, the nose unfolds with aromas of cherry and ripe plum and hints of red berries, cocoa and vanilla. It is very intense and persistent wine, rich and supple with fine tannins.
It is an ideal pairing with sophisticated roasts, game, duck a l'orange, full-flavoured cheeses and even the spicy dishes typical of Asian cuisine.
It is also considered a 'meditation' wine to be served at approximately 14°C (57°F), uncorking the bottle an hour prior to consumption.
