Grown on the famous Monvigliero Hill in Verduno, this wine is complex with fruit notes pleasantly mingling with a certain spiciness and aromas of autumn leaves.
Colour: Magnificent garnet red with beautiful glints of ruby; legs with full and lingering tears draw to the fore its clarity.
Aroma: Elegant, intense, full and lingering; notes of dried rose, forest floor, sweet tobacco and spices.
Taste: Captivating ripe tannins evolve into a fresh and balanced sweetness. Its range of flavours is intensified by notes of chocolate, mature fruit and spices.
