Tasting notes: this wine shows the characteristics of both varieties of vine, accurately balanced in order to enhance its fruity character. Its elegant and slight spicy character derives from black Pallagrello grapes, while its intense colour and its finish of bitter almond are distinctive of Casavecchia vine. A bright ruby wine with hints of fresh fruit compôte and dominant raspberry and bilberry flavours on the nose. Fresh and well balanced in the mouth, with a good alcoholic structure, this wine goes well with all dishes.
