It is a noble red wine obtained by the wise mixture of indigenous grapes cultivated in the vineyards of Monteprandone. It has a deep ruby red colour, a neat, pleasant and stimulating scent with a long and persistant aftertaste. It is perfect with all sorts of roast, grilled and boiled meat; it prefers, though, salami and seasoned cheeses. It is also very well accompanied with any type of game. It must be uncorked at least an hour before drinking.

Tasting Notes: This red wine is brightly ruby-coloured, perfumes of sour black cherry mixed with notes of pepper, ginger, tobacco. Balsamic fragrances and sweet herbs make it warm and gentle on the palate while very concentrated. Velvety texture with well integrated tannins; long finish.
