Prugnolo Gentile 90%, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon 10%Colour: intense ruby red.Bouquet: the wine is fresh, young, with perfumes of ripe fruit, particularly blackberries and raspberries; at the same time there are scents linked to the brief maturing in oak casks.Flavour: a well-balanced wine, pleasant and complex; the striking freshness indicates that it is highly suitable for a brief period of maturing and gives a guarantee that it will keep well.A wine for all courses, young, but with notable structure and softness.Serve at: about 18 C.Goes well with: soups and traditional first courses, fresh and lightly matured cheeses, seasoned meats, salumi.
