Dedicated to Elena, Roberto Sarotto's second child born in 1998, this wine is grown on the estate's oldest vineyards in magnificent positions facing south. It has a powerful, complex nose of ripe fruit, and good body showing marvellously balanced structure, acidity and tannins. A rich, round, smooth wine, with a full flavour that lingers in the mouth.
This wine is stimulating and inspiring and is ideally suited to rich pasta dishes as well as succulent beef steaks.
