Purple with a dark cheery-coloured rim, dense viscosity. Spicy flavour profile of blackheart, sour cherry cake, chocolate streusel, touch of vanilla, blackberries sun-ripened, noble woods with light toasting, delicate notes of plums and blackthorn. Dry, powerfully structured with substantial smooth tannins which seem as if covered with cherry chocolate. Striking and inviting. These muscles grew without steroids. Animating fruit sweetness supported by “Rust minerality” dressed up with fiery temperament. Long finish and a promising ageing potential.
Rolled roasted calf in natural sauce, pork medallions crusted with pepper, pecorino with olive oil and walnut bread, companion in decisive conception phases – in the evening and much more.
