Region: Valpolicella, Italy
Varietal: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara
Colour: Ruby red with garnet tinges
Nose: Intense hints of jam (marasca cherry, plum), followd by cocoa, tobacco, licorice and tea leaf notes, finishing with moss, leather and "goudron", a warm, ethereal and intense note, which reminds of tar without being unpleasant and is typical of long-aging red wines
Palate: Well-structured, complex, fascinating, warm on the palate, with a long persistence and a perfect balance of softness, acidity and tannic notes.
Food Pairing: Grilled red meat, roast beef, entrecote, sliced beef, fillet (in crust or with pepper), stews and game, but also goes well with very mature cheeses. It is recommended also as a "meditation wine", slowly sipped to round of a meal to enjoy all the different hues of its complex and incredible bouquet.
