Intensely ruby red in colour ; its bouquet tends to be flowery, evolving to ethereal with moderate ageing; dry, fresh, full and harmonious and slightly sweet on the palate.
Served at cellar temperature, it is a suitable companion for even the most humble food, such as bread and salame or gorgonzola, but rises perfectly to the occasion when served with soup and pasta, game, grilled meats and hard cheeses.
