Don Lucifero

 

The Don Lucifero 2019 turns out to be a juicy and pleasant wine to the nose thanks to the intense notes of cherry and blackberry enriched by shades of fresh violet as well as by intriguing spicy sensations. When tasted, it stands out for its body and softness while maintaining character and drinkability thanks to the elegant – but still vivid – tannins and pleasant freshness. Try it with pappardelle in game sauce as well as with stewed red meat dishes.
