Dense ruby red with purple hues. Aromas of spices, blackberry, jam, and forest. The palate has a solid structure, with notes of vanilla and incense, scarlet tones, herbaceous sensations, royal tannins, a noble alcoholic whiff and a spicy, fruity finish.
The vineyards of Maison Anselmet are all located in the so-called Central Valley, a territory of morainic origin, with the characteristic «V» shape given by the progressive disappearance of ancient glaciers that have given way to the waters of the Dora Baltea. Downstream, the soil is pebbly and sandy, while higher up it becomes steep and rocky, forcing Anselmet to a heroic viticulture, made up of handwork and diligent maintenance of the terraces. The star of the Central Valley is the climate, particularly suitable for the vine, which has found its chosen land here since the fifteenth century. Low rainfall, constant ventilation, excellent exposure and significant temperature variations give the wines a superior freshness and elegance, capable of surprising for the persistence and finesse of the aromas.
