"Sensational, its appearance in the glass is a chromatic event of exceptional expressive power. A black purplish that only a maximally concentrated wine, made from grapes fully matured and transformed with pure oenology, rarely succeeds to show off. Qualities that make Edizione Cinque Autoctoni – Farnese vini, the best red wine tasted this year. A wine of maximum native density, that without mole and oxidation, evokes a pure blackberry juice." - Luca Maroni’s
Tasting Note: Deep garnet red. Intense, persistent nose, notes of cherry, blackcurrant, herbs, cinnamon, cloves, cocoa, liquorice and hints of mineral. Structured and well balanced palate, velvety tannins, very persistent with a long finish.
