To drink it at its best

Service temp.
16°-18°C
Opening
To enjoy it at its best, we recommend you to let the wine 'breathe' at least 15-30 minutes before serving
Glass
Medium open goblet
Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied red wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion

Evolving

Wine good to drink now, but that can have a beautiful evolution after resting for a while in your cellar

You can easily leave it in your cellar even for more than 5 years
