Tasting Notes

‘Malombra’ has a luminous, rich, intense garnet red color. It has a delicate nose showing notes of well-ripened fruit with hints of pomegranate, quince jam, floral scents, vanilla and clove, tanned leather, pipe tobacco, and chocolate, all of which continue to the well-structured palate. Pairs well with char-grilled steaks, pot roasts, and mildly spiced dishes.
