After de-vatting, the wine matured for 12 months, 50% in 350 liter (92 gallon) tonneaux and 50% in 60 hectoliter (1,320 gallon) oak barrels, followed by a further period of bottle aging.

Colour

A concentrated and opaque ruby-red.

Bouquet

A fine yet intense nose, in which one finds almost jam-like ripe red fruit scents, mingled with attractive floral notes against a light background of vanilla.

Flavour

Full-flavored and rich in extract; the sensations on the palate echo the fruity and floral notes that are evident on the nose.

Serve at around 18°C. (64°F.)

It goes well with full-flavored pasta and rice dishes, barbecued meats and fairly mature cheeses.
