Designation of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin
A wine produced only in the best vintages using grapes from the oldest vines of the Rocche Meruzzano vineyard, an outstanding area in terms of exposition, microclima and soil.
Ruby-red, with a rich, complex, highly elegant bouquet revealing layers of violets, plums and cherries, cinnamon, pepper and liquorice, topped by tobacco and white truffles. Its dry, well-balanced flavour starts out firm and smooth, and packed with stuffing, becoming gradually more elegant and harmonious with a lingering finish.
