Deep ruby red, tending to garnet. Complex and intense aroma of cherry, raspberry, licorice and balsam notes. Full bodied, with balanced tannins and nice acidity with a long aftertaste of ripe fruit and spices. Aged up to 42 months, a part in Slavonian oak barrels and a part in French oak barrique. Aged in bottle for up to 8 months before release. A stunning example of Italian elegance that will age fabulously for decades to come.
