The Well-known Secret. This wine holds no more secrets for the real winelover. Carignan, Grenache Noir blended around a core of Syrah. It has been justifiably declared as the appellation’s tenor. Dark colour. Beautifully concentrated nose bursting with ripe fruits, herbs and spices. On the palate there’s lots of sweet ripe fruit, beautifully integrated wood and a very long finish.
In conclusion, a true representation of the Castigno style. Preferably, serve the wine in a large Burgundy glass.
