Deep ruby red in colour. Aromatic, ripe fruit compote flavours on the nose with just a hint of pepper and saddle leather. On the palate, fruit and acid is well balanced with plenty of rich plum flavours and a long silky finish. For such a gutsy wine, it has great finesse. Ideal with traditional Italian dishes such as tagliatelle and ravioli served with with a hearty red meat and tomato sauce. Also great with mushroom risotto, empanadas and rather obviously...a good steak!
