Sensory impressions

A deep, brilliant ruby red colour with lively garnet hues. It has a rich bouquet of ripe fruits and walnuts in which prevails a balsamic sensation and a reminiscence of raspberry, black pepper and leather. Balanced on the palate, the sapidity has the leading role, enriched by enveloping tannins and fruit crispiness, exalted by spices complexity. Long and satisfying finish.

Recommended food pairings

Arlèo honours some of the heartiest dishes of our local cuisine, such as fresh pasta with hare or boar sauce, risotto with tastasàl (a mixture of freshly minced pork, beef and veal, generously seasoned with freshly ground black pepper), and the more rustic “polenta e osei”. It is also excellent with the more renowned Châteaubriand steak and goose confit. Ripe cheeses such as Monte Veronese Vecchio, Asiago Stagionato and 24-month old Grana Padano are also highly recommended.
