The wine is deep purple in color with smoky, earthy aromas and seductive hints of tobacco and graphite. Notes of ripe black cherries, cassis, tobacco and leather come through on the palate of this big-structured, full-bodied wine. This iconic wine pairs beautifully with Italian or French pot roasts, filet mignon or aged cuts of beef.
A sculpted red, with sleek tannins framing the fresh profile of crushed black currant, smoky mineral, dried fig, graphite and spice box. Dense and finely balanced, this should show well with at least a few years in the cellar. Aglianico and Piedrosso.
