A high quality wine which improves over the years, of intense garnet red colour, with a pleasing aroma of cooked plums and blackberries, with an underlying hint of vanilla. It has a full body, a rich tannic structure, soft with an intense fruity taste and a balanced, elegant, spiced final note.
The fact that it comes from Cabernet, Merlot and Barbera grapes, influences the distinct Piedmontese character of this wine.
