This is a very versatile wine, with really substantial dry extract and body. It is mellow on the palate, thanks to its higher level of residual sugar. Its broad bouquet ranges from ripe cherries to wild blackberries, closing with a definite scent of prunes. In spite of its softness on the palate, the finish – with its very gentle tannins – is always clean and dry, making this wine extremely suitable for matching with various types of food. It has a whole host of ideal gastronomic accompaniments: from Mantuan pumpkin tortelli to dishes containing balsamic vinegar or chestnuts, or from boiled pig’s trotter to fruit tarts.
