Tasting notes: A bright delicate ruby red, that offers the typical transparency of Brunello. At the nose, it expresses a fine bouquet, where small red fruits are surrounded by earthy and irony notes. In the mouth it offers purity and energy without being excessive. A rich and linear body, so fluent and polished that will capture the total attention of all of your senses for a very long time. Serve with roasted meat, aged cheeses and pasta.
