60% Barbera, 40% Syrah. Deep ruby red in color with purple highlights, richly fruity aromas of plums and cherries with notes of violets, coffee, and spices. The palate is ample, dense, full with soft tannins, elegant and long. It is an excellent match with meat dishes, pot-au-feu, and fresh cheeses.
The wine is a vivid and intense ruby red in color with a grapey and fruity (plum and cherry) aroma. Grapes grown on light and loose-textured soils and modern oenological techniques which enable producers to obtain and conserve fruit and freshness combine to make this a wine which is very pleasurable in its youth. For this reason it goes well with simple dishes such as hors doeuvres, soups, risotto, and pasta. The wine is most enjoyable at cool 55°-59° Fahrenheit.
