Of a deep, very thick ruby color, and of hard transparency if not looked against reflected light. The Nerone possesses elegant, noble and dense tannins. When oxygenated, you can smell deep, persistent and very spiced flavors. The "Nerone di Calabria" challenges the most fastidious palates, satisfying them in full, especially when matched with red meat, grilled food, gravies, cold cuts and ripe cheeses.
