Tenuta San Quirico
Langhe DOC Le Brume
This is a rather sophisticated wine, obtained through a wine making process of well matured grapes. Aged in French barriques (oak casks) it acquires a touch of elegante, and it is left to rest for long periods in the bottle before being placed on the market. It is best served with meat dishes. Wine of great complexity with notes of large and small red fruits (from cherry to currant), black fruits (blueberry and other berries). Spicy flavours due to its passage in wood. Great softness and volume at taste, pleasant tannic with a very light hint of bitterness at the end (pleasant and characteristic)
