The color is ruby red. The fragrance delicately plays between small, just-ripe black fruits, the characteristic marasca, red rose petals, a hint of pipe tobacco, and a memory of graphite, completing the olfactory spectrum.
On the palate, the wine decisively and elegantly pervades the oral cavity, lingering long after swallowing, with hints of cocoa and spicy notes.
