Taurasi Riserva Hamilton DOCG (Vini d’Arte)
Luminous ruby red tending toward garnet, it is redolent of blackberries, mulberry, eucalyptus and humus; at the end, spices and tobacco. Fresh and savory on the palate, with velvety tannins and a final intense recall of ashes. Prime pairings include baked duck in orange sauce, crusted beef filet, and Hungarian Goulash soup.
