Medium ruby colour with garnet tints. Clean, uplifted berry character, young and quite plump aroma with some spiciness (pepper). Medium bodied, with soft fruit flavours and some light tannin and a little acidity on the finish giving a nice freshness.
Light green lustre run through the straw colour of this wine whose aroma is rich in fruits, the most striking of which are pears. An excellent acidity balance gives this wine strength and structure. It is dry and smooth on the palate, and leaves a long, pleasant aftertaste. The Pinot Grigio goes well with many dishes, especially lighter foods, to which it is an excellent accompaniment. It is served chilled and also bestows a fine taste following longer ageing.
Deep, dark red in colour, with fine aromas of dark berries such as mulberry; lightly earthy. Full-bodied, with supple tannins, velvety and uncomplicated; excellent length.
Color: Dark ruby red with light purple reflections Aroma: Elegant, spicy and fruity with notes of chocolate, tobacco and pepper, as well of the flavor of mature Amarena-cherries and a hint of wood Flavor: Elegant and fresh structure with mild and very well bounded tannins, fruity, salty and juicy with a pleasant acidity and a smooth-tongued and elegant finish Best enjoyed: with braised and grilled meats and venison, as well as with tasty-ripened cheese.
