The dominant flavors of dark fruit, sweet spices, and a touch of earthiness are beautifully complemented by the wine's delicate floral notes and hints of herbs. Mid-palate, the flavors evolve to reveal undertones of dried figs and a touch of licorice, creating a layered and harmonious profile.
Finish: The finish is elegant, lingering, and satisfying, with the wine's multifaceted flavors gradually giving way to a lasting aftertaste of ripe fruit, subtle earthiness, and a touch of spice.

Its vibrant flavors and refined character make it an ideal companion for hearty meat dishes, such as grilled lamb chops, roasted pork tenderloin, or a classic Italian osso buco.
For a vegetarian option, consider pairing the wine with a rich, savory vegetable lasagna or a flavorful eggplant caponata, as the wine's acidity and fruitiness will complement the earthiness and richness of these dishes.
