Taste: elegant, structured, definitely strong, even soft and round; in the right proportion tannic, with a mature tempering and a distant hint of peppers.
Suitable food: lasagne, ravioli with meat, stewed mushrooms, veal and pork roast, stewed and grilled venison, braised meat, gorgonzola, provolone and parmesan cheese (also grilled)

Serving way: open the bottle by time before serving or pour the wine into a crystal pitcher to help oxygenation. The size of the crystal pitcher facilities the development of soft, ripe and complex tannins.
