Bright crimson with hints of ruby and magenta. Fleshy fruit aromas of ripe plum and fruits of the forest with a hint of vanilla pod, white pepper and savoury spice. This wine is medium bodied with confectionary, dark berry fruit, tobacco leaf, chocolate and spice flavours. Its mid-palate fruit generosity is complemented by a dash of grainy, rustic Sangiovese which adds a savoury edge and moreish tannin finish to the final blend. Enjoy now with a bowl of slow-cooked Italian beef stew, flavoured with rosemary, sage and pancetta, and served with a side of creamy polenta; or a tomato and eggplant ciambotta.
