Characteristics of this Tuscan red wine

The organoleptic analysis of the wine shows an intense ruby color appearance in the glass. The nose has rich and persuasive notes of sour cherry, pulpy and ripe red fruits, well integrated with ethereal and spicy notes. The taste on the palate is rich, enveloping, velvety, in excellent balance. It closes with a warm finish, where you can see the sensations already felt on the nose. A wine that stands in comparison with important dishes.
