A mature garnet red colour of the wine, with some vague orange shades. Limpid I would say. It's colour speaks about a very well preserved wine. It's a consistent wine.
It has a mixture of mature dark fruits in the nose, relative intense, with fairly perceivable scents of liquorice and tabacco. Together with the scents of meat, soil and whet leafs at the end, it's complex in the nose.
In the mouth it gives you an elegant presence of it's tannins. You can feel the slight presence from the Cabernet Sauvignon through the flavours of green peppar and mint coming through after the tannins, and finally the strawberry flavour comes from the Merlot. A zip of this Riserva gives you a relative long, persistent and complex pleasure. Parteno fills the mouth intense and very well, persistent, but the finish comes a little bit to sudden and abrupt, otherwise this would have been close to an excellent wine.
A perfect wine for the veal or similar meat, cooked in the oven.
Tasted at 18 Celsius degrees.
