Tasting notes

Garnet, with ruby reflections. A shade that refers to the cardinal's clothing, such as "Pio Decimo" to which the label is dedicated. An elegant and layered nose of black pepper, red currant, walnut kernel, star anise, rhubarb, with blood orange blood orange and sweet notes given by the toasting of the wood. Fresh, medium body and intensity. Very pretty.
