Dark purple with distinctive violet reflections and opaque core. Enchanting fruit challenge. Cassis, black elder berry and delicate chocolate at the perfect temperature. Additionally confit of black berries, black tea and freshly cut cedar wood. Spicy nuances and dried fruit. Dry. Vital Cabernet-fruit, fine tannin frame and Cabernet Sauvignon-pep. Dark berry-dominated core with extract power and finesse. Powerful finish, juvenile decathlon winner who could also score on long distances. Mostly taller by the head as all the others.
Porchetta with lavish fennel, snack combo: home made bread, butter, juniper ham, smoked salt. Fresh game ravioli with Pecorino Sardo, risotto with stripes of venison, recent Sbrinz, medium to rare rib eye in black pepper crust, quail wrapped in bacon with stewed berries, very thinly sliced Mangalitza ham. Confit of wild duck with cranberries, goose ragout with glace of Cassis. Goes well with sophisticated, progressive literature and for all those who prefer a half- full glass to a half-empty one.
