Nero

The deep ruby red colour highlights its full bodied structure. It has ample aroma of violets and ripe red fruits preserved in alcohol (cherry and blueberry) which blend perfectly with the mineral notes and a background of pepper and juniper. To the palate it is rich, intense, dry, harmonious and rich in extracts, with mature tannins which have been developed thanks to the refinement in the wooden barrels. A truly elegant taste-aroma persistence.
