Pliny the Elder already praised this noble wine over 2000 years ago, by ascribing the extraordinary longevity of Livia – Emperor Augustus’ wife – to her daily consumption of this wine.
Today it is quite appreciated by connoisseurs and wine lovers who like austere and structured wines. The color is dark intense ruby. To the nose it’s cherry jam at first, followed by spicy and graphite notes. In the mouth it’s immediately voluminous, warm, well balanced; its mineral complexity is enriched by the sweet tannins, enhancing its verticality. The finish is full and fragrant.
It’s powerful, rich, modern and austere at the same time, suited to a refined clientele; a well-rounded wine.
