This southern pairing has a deep purple color and a rich fruity aroma. Hints of sour cherry and blackberry combine well with the mineral character and peppery spice. The taste is well structured, with polished tannins and a long aftertaste, dominated by ripe fruit, pleasantly combined with balsamic and vanilla notes.
The wine is first aged in 225-liter Bordeaux barrels followed by further refinement in 6500-liter French oak foudres.
Food pairing suggestions for this intensely flavored red wine include slow-roasted pork, marinated veal cutlet, chocolate desserts and cured and semi-cured cheeses.
