Grapes: Albarossa (100%)

Colour: Intense violet colour

Nose: On the nose, the wine displays a spectacle of aromas of ripe cherry, plum, berries and spices with balsamic note

Mouth: On the palate it expresses all its power. It is extremely pulpy, tannic but smooth and it has an extraordinary concentration of fruit. It is very long, with a sweetness that reveals a taste of blueberry and ripe plum

Soil: The soil is rich of calcareous clay marl. The microclimate is influenced of sea winds which favour the integrity and the ripening of the grapes

Vinification: The harvested grapes get destalked and soft-pressed. After that, we place them in steel vinificator machines for a cold maceration. The process, which lasts about 36/40 hours, favours the maximal extraction from the fruit of aromas, colour and structure. Then the Albarone ages for a total of 24 months in 1000 lt. French oak barrels

Enjoy together with: Albarone pairs perfectly with very structured meat dishes, like pork cheek in red wine sauce, or veal stew. Exceptional is the pairing with pappardelle with venison and chestnuts sauce. With the refinement it is very interesting with desserts, like the chocolate pie with melting heart or the chocolate chestnuts pie
