Tasting

A red with a balanced body and a fine ruby colour. Its aromas are typically spicy and consist of pepper and sweet tobacco; the background notes hint at red-fruit jam and violet. A pleasant drinkability with good concentration, mature and harmonious tannins with a long-lasting fruity finish.

Food pairing

Strangozzi pasta with red onion and cheek bacon, BBQ with spicy sauce, T-bone steak, beef fillet with balsamic condiment and extra virgin olive oil, roast beef with roast potatoes, stewed eel, eggplant caponata, rotisserie chicken, slightly aged cheeses (pecorino, Parmigiano), traditional Lasagne alla Bolognese. Thanks to its moderate body it is also excellent for preparing sauces.
