Sensory profile The wine appears a warm, garnet-edged ruby-red, boasting impressive depth and intensity. The nose initially releases evolved nuances of smooth, elegant spices, which slowly yield to appealing fragrances of mixed nuts and fruits, including date, fig, and wild strawberry. This aromatic complex is bolstered by a lively vein of black pepper and pipe tobacco, and complemented by vanilla, sandalwood and nutmeg, while a delicate florality completes an aromatic mosaic of great harmony. Equally rich and multi-faceted is the wine’s entry on the palate—complex, evolved, and with a generous alcoholic warmth. This liqueur-like component builds slowly and delicately, but then expands in the mouth with great verve, laced with vigorous impressions of earthy mineral and herbs. An exquisite suite of fine-grained tannins accompanies a progression that culminates in a finish infused with spices, dried fruit and nuts. The crafting of this Pignolo 2008 is the fruit of a great love for, and understanding of this grape variety and of the terroir that yields it. This wine partners beautifully with slow-cooked meat dishes and heightens the finest creations based on dark chocolate.
Pairings This wine pairs wonderfully with well-seasoned, savoury meat dishes and game. It tastes very interesting with dark chocolate.
