The Prima Donna of Stagnari is an aristocratic specimen. For a Tannat, this wine is slightly feminine in character. Wonderfully fragrant of plum tarts, roasted coffee beans and caramel. Balanced on the palate, carried by red fruit and enveloped by velvety but present tannins, this is the wine-equivalent of a bodybuilder who is in touch with his emotions.
Pairings: Juicy steaks, either pan-seared or grilled.
Storage potential: 7 - 9 years (can be significantly longer under ideal conditions)
