It is obtained from the best Cabernet grapes grown in the Leo Nardin Estate. After fermentation, it ages for six months in original French barriques made of the finest Allier oak. It is then left to rest in wooden barrels for three years before being bottled. With its distinctive grassy flavour and a well balanced body, it is rich and mouth-filling, but still very dry in the mouth. The barrique ageing process enhances the elegance and intensity of this brilliant ruby red wine. It adds tobacco and tar aromas, scents of vanilla and a lot of spices to its bouquet, intermingled with a distinctive weedy nose and hints of liquorice and mixed berries. Best decanted for a while before drinking in order to allow the aromas and flavours to fully express their personality.
RECOMMENDED PAIRINGS: It matches wonderfully with strong-flavoured meat dishes such as lamb cutlets, roast meat, game, ribs in barbecue sauce, aged cheese, truffle risotto.
