Sensory characteristics and recommended pairings
The nose is deep and complex, with hints of gladiolus, citrus and dark berry fruits, crowned with elegant balsamic notes. It lingers in the mouth, developing gradually with a tannic weave of rare finesse. It represents the full flowering of Vallocaia Sangiovese. Excellent with red meats and game, truffles, porcini mushrooms, mature cheeses.
Also enjoyable on its own.
Serve at 20 °C.
