Characteristics of this wine from Cantina Folonari

The appearance is intense in color reminiscent of a juice of blackberries. The bouquet is powerful with notes of cinchona, sour cherry and juniper wood, accompanied by undergrowth, finally opening towards spicy spices. The taste is full and rich in the mouth, fruity, intensely savory, in the finish of the mouth gives smoky and balsamic notes.

 

Suggested pairings tasting this Tuscan red wine

The body wine that needs consistent dishes, in this case with main courses of meat. Try it with a guinea fowl stuffed with mushrooms and blueberries. The service temperature is 16ºC.
