(1997 Vintage) Dark and deep red color. Appealing red cherries and black plums with a touch of toasty oak. The wine is endowed with a remarkable bouquet, complex overtones and a lingering finish. This wine is excellent with the heartiest cuisine, including roasts, stews, piquant pasta dishes and robust cheeses. It is well structured, perfectly balanced and boasts a satisfying and lingering finish.
