An intense red color with ruby highlights. Hints of redcurrants, blackberries and cocoa powder on the nose, together with spicy notes of black pepper, cloves and nutmeg. On the palate a pleasant flavor of red fruit, sour cherries, concentrated cherry and black tea, followed by fine, powdery tannins with a coffee bean finish. It is a plush wine with good weight and the typical complexity of mature vineyards, though still young and vibrant. Combining drinkability with complexity, this wine goes so well with food that it can be paired with several dishes to bring out its convivial value.

The 2016 Secco-Bertani Original Vintage Edition presents a dark, rich display plums, cherries and brown spice. It's silky in feel with polished black fruits and a slight pepper twang, as fine tannins mount toward the close. This feels a bit lean through the finale, yet it's balanced all the same, resonating on citrus-tinged blackberries. The 2016 is a blend of 80% Corvina clones (Rizza, Nera, and Corvinone), balanced by a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Syrah.
