TASTING NOTES In the glass, it is bright ruby-red with garnet reflections. Intense nose with aromas reminiscent of marinated cherries and raspberries, and spicy hints of dark chocolate in the background. In the mouth, it is elegant, harmonious with good freshness, velvety tannins and a long finish. Perfect reflection of the variety of origin, it shares bouquet and elegance with the Barolo with a lightness that goes well with any meal.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS Perfect combination with roasted or stewed meats. It is the noble compendium for the hand-made tajarin with white truffle of Alba. Excellent with aged cheeses.
