Piera 1899 - Composizione di Rosso
Tasting note
Bright intense ruby red that darkens into garnet after time. Full persistent aroma with over-ripe tones of Marasca cherry on a lovely cascade of vanilla and floral violet hints. Dry, harmonic velvety smoothness of tannins, notes of pepper and dark chocolate.

Serving suggestions
Sublime with red meats, roasts and ripe cheeses. So structured and aromatic, this wine can be drunk on its own.
