The grapes destined for the production of this wine come from vineyards located on hills, characterised by clay/limestone soils interspersed with compact layers of sandstone, quartz sands and very fine silt. This provides the wine with a broad, rich structure, a balanced and expressive character.
The colour is garnet red with ruby reflections. Aromas are pronounced and persistent with distinct traces of spices, cinnamon, absinthe, tobacco and wild rose. The taste is full and elegant, with soft tannins. The spicy and the woody aromas blend perfectly. This vintage matches perfectly with the traditional Langhe egg pasta (Tajarin), ravioli, red meats, stews, boiled and braised meats and game. It pairs well with sheep and goat’s milk cheeses and other mildly-seasoned cheeses.
