Sensory profile
This novello appears ruby red, shot through with deep purple. The youthfully-vibrant nose boasts intense, heady draughts of pungent scrub and bright fruit that linger long. The palate is marked by a lively, emphatic acidity, light tannins, and satisfying balance. This youthful red goes particularly well with autumn cuisine, with dishes featuring chestnuts and walnuts, and with a wide range of sausages and salamis.
