Pairing: An aristocratic and highly prized wine, it is also a meditation wine, a happy combination with roasts and noble game.

Ageing: At this point the wine is made but it is still, though powerful, rough and rustic. It needs a right period of aging and respectful and patient rest. This operation is completed with an adequate aging in oak barrels and barriques, at a constant temperature, for a time that varies depending on the power of the year between 18 and 30 months. After another 6-8 months of refinement in the bottle is ready for tasting.
