In the glass the Albarone amazes already for its intense violet colour. In the nose it is a spectacle of aromas of ripe cherry, plum, berries and spices with balsamic note. On the palate it expresses all its power: it is extremely pulpy, tannic but smooth and it has an extraordinary concentration of fruit. It is very long, with a sweetness that reveals a taste of blueberry and ripe plum. This wine begins to express its real complexity after 5-6 years of refinement in the bottle.
If stored at a constant temperature (12°-14°C/53°-57°F) it can be tasted also after 25 years. Service temperature: 16°-18°(62°F-66°F)
Food pairing: Albarone pairs perfectly with very structured meat dishes, like pork cheek in red wine sauce, or veal stew. Exceptional is the pairing with pappardelle with venison and chestnuts sauce. With the refinement it is very interesting with desserts, like the chocolate pie with melting heart or the chocolate chestnuts pie.
