Impeccable richness on the nose, offering ripe blackberry, cherry and plum aromas with delicate spicy notes of cedarwood and with a tobacco finish. The palate is full-bodied, loaded with luscious black cherry and berry fruit flavours propped up by bright acidity. Twelve months spent in small oak casks have rounded and softened the texture and polished the tannins. There are some warm spices and almondy tones on the finish. A top-class wine made from old vines with passion and care. The 2018 was a great year for reds in Abruzzo, the wine is ready to drink now but it will also age well for many years.

Pairs well with roasted red meat and barbecue, game dishes, wild boar stews, tomato-based pasta, and aged cheeses.

Decant for at least an hour before serving.
