Color: Ruby-red with garnet reflections. Bouquet: Fine, with scents of cherries, wild berry fruits, violets and hints of spice. Flavor: Dry and fresh, with good body and agreeable tannins. Food Combinations: When young it is excellent with richly-flavoured dishes, especially the traditional Tuscan specialties. After 3 to 4 years we recommend it with game, stewed meats, and strong, mature cheeses.
