The elegance and finesse of fresh red-coloured fruit, menthol and tabacco flavours, characterizes the plush and its beautiful personality. Great freshness and a complete balance between balsamic and aromatic notes pleasantly owerwhelm the palate. Exceptionally long finish.

Harmonious contrast between the typical notes of Sangiovese, such as morello cherry and violet, and the darker ones typical of Merlot, such as blueberry and wild blackberry.

Pairing: Sweetbreads with butter and sage, Gragnano spaghetti with octopus sauce.
