As soon as the wine has just matured its colour is a deep ruby-red with violet tints. As it ages the colours are more vivid with orange shades. The scents are fruity and floral and the taste is warm, dry and full bodied. The wine has a long and soft persistence of withered fruits and flowers, jam and liquorice root which is gently bitter. it varies in accordance with the degree of ripening of the wine. A more mature wine has a high degree of softness and harmony so it is excellent with more flavoursome and structured dishes. This provides a balance between the rich taste of the food and the harmony of the wine. It is excellent combined with truffle base dishes or with wild fennel flavoured dishes, with meat sauces, barbecues, beef, pork and lamb sheep, game, boiled and stewed meats. It is also good with the excellent local aged cheese called "Pecorino", or with a good aged Parmesan or with a matured Gorgonzola together with local walnuts.
