The color is deep garnet red with orange reflections accented with shades of pink and purple. Intense and persistent, ethereal with notes of fruit and dried flowers. It has evident aromas of sweet spice, toast and leather. Of remarkable structure, enhances tannins but remain soft and pleasant with typical austerity; full-bodied and very charming. Food Pairings: Ideal in combination with dishes based on red meats, game, roasts and cheeses and cured meats. For its nobility, it is pleasant even after a meal as a meditation wine.

Wine SpectatorPlenty of tea, leather, roses and ripe fruit. Full-bodied, with silky, fine tannins and a long, ripe fruit aftertaste. Delicious and fine. Best after 2005. 1,650 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis is the most earthy and rustic of the wines produced by Batasiolo. The fruit is firm, solid and tannic, with flavors of parsnips and crisp acidity. Already coming into balance, it should develop relatively fast, over the next five to 10 years.
