In the glass a dark ruby red color.
On the nose intense aromas of black cherries and prunes with hints of chocolate, coffee and vanilla.
On the palate full bodied with good structure, fine grained tannins, nice acidity with little sweetness (not too much) and flavours of raisins, light nutty, dark red fruit, leather and tabacco.
Grapes Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella
Total Acidity 5.85 g/lt
Residual Sugar 3.8 g/lt
Colour Deep red
Aroma Red fruits, especially prunes and cherries with a slight hint of nutmeg and a delicate balsamic note
Taste Strong flavour, just the right level of tannins, good persistence, with an enveloping finale
Especially recommended for accompanying autumn risottos (risotto with mushrooms, red chicory or risotto al Tastasal), pasta and beans, various roast or baked meat dishes or boiled with “pearà” (typical Veronese sauce)
