On the nose it offers aromas of ripe forest fruits and undertones of vanilla while on the palate this wine is closetextures, mouth-filling with aromas of ripe raspberries and blackberries. There is a nice balance of acidity alcohol and tannins followed by a long-appealing finish. It is ideal for a long period of ageing; matured in large barrel for 6 months and refined in bottle for at least 12 months. Serving temperature is 18 °C and it can be served throughout the entire meal Barbera: A red grape variety of Piedmont origin.

    (2005 Vintage) This dark ruby wine opens with a moderate blueberry and blackberry like bouquet with a touch of tobacco. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is balanced, not overly complex, but has no hard edges...
