TASTING NOTES

Bolgheri DOC 2016 Tenuta Le Colonne is a deep ruby red with glossy highlights.

Aromas: Linear, elegant, with hints of black fruit such as black berries, and cherry. Delicate hints of vanilla accompany the bouquet.

Taste: intense and full-bodied, but also refreshing and refined. The tannins are plush and austere. Long persistent finish.

Superb with meat roasts, Chianina beef steak, roasted lamb and game.
