TASTING PROPERTIES A deep ruby red with purplish highlights; nose vinous and intensely fruity, with nice hints of red currants and raspberries; taste fresh and vibrant on the mouth, showing a long, rich, smooth flavor.
PAIRINGS excellent with the more flavoursome Piedmontese dishes, from mixed boiled meats to the anchovy and garlic-based “bagna caoda”; generally a great match too for cooked and raw cold cuts, stewed meats, and medium-mature fatty cheeses. Serving temperature: 60°C
STORING ready to enjoy a little over 1 year following the harvest, it keeps nicely for 5-8 years, and even longer in the better vintages. Cellaring recommended with the bottle lying down in the dark at a constant temperature.
