South Tyrol's finest autochthonous red grape variety, grown in a superb site; an enormously impressive wine!
medium cherry-red colour. Pronounced, fruity (prune, cherry) and spicy aroma with notes of leather, tar, dark chocolate and floral nuances (violets), along with oak spice. Medium structure and with good fruit intensity on the palate. The tannins are present though balanced. Good length with an earthy aftertaste. When cellared under proper conditions, this wine may be kept for 8 to 10 years.
This bacon is well suited for hors-d'oeuvre courts.
