Peiragal is an ancient Piedmontese dialect term, which identifies hills with a good slope made up of large formations of very compact limestone clayey soil, with large stones. These conditions limit the absorption of rain and favour a very deep rooting of the vines, in search of the humidity that rises from the deep layers. The result is the production of loose bunches and, therefore, of a very structured wine, with moderate acidity, well-balanced alcohol content and sweet tannins, never too evident.
The colour is ruby-red, tending towards garnet. Aromas combine fruity hints of raspberry with spicy and ethereal aromas of violet and vanilla. The palate is balanced and harmonious, with understated, docile tannins and a delicate oaky note. Thanks to its structure, the wine is well-matched with a range of appetisers, pasta dishes with rich sauces, roasted or stewed meats. It is also an ideal companion for fresh cold cuts and aged cheeses.
