A light, young and fragrant wine that does not tire, with a medium intensity olfactory side, medium complexity and persistence, suitable for drinking on ordinary dishes and not always discounted.
The Sommelier: In the limpid and brilliant glass, bright ruby red color, good visible consistency to the rotation of the wine in the glass. At the initial vinous nasal impact, then aromas of cherry and almond at the pre-harvest (woody) stage, like a memory of pomegranate, roasted coffee.
Taste to the taste: clean, dry, with the presence of two grapes two sensations in one: soft and hard, well balanced with good freshness and moderate tannins. On the palate it shows thickness and reserves a fairly persistent finish
Recommended pairings: Tasty dishes, fish cooked in every way: Cardoncelli mushrooms and baked potatoes; vegetable omelettes; fried snails; vegetable soup Cardoncelle and lamb, semi-hard and seasoned cheeses with various cold cuts; Vegetables and vegetables in EVO oil; dried fruit.
Uncork and serve at a temperature between 15 - 16 ° C, in a Burgundy glass.
