Its extraordinary colour – an intense ruby-red tinged with garnet shades – shows the wine’s youth, not yet ripe after the first years of maturation. Transparent and brilliant, the beautiful legs and tears coursing the sides of the glass show both its generous alcoholic content and the abundant extractive compounds.
Its bouquet is frank, intense, full-bodied and complex. The perfume reminds mature fruit, cacao, noble woods, mint and sweet spices.
At a first taste the sensation is of intense, pleasing and sweet warmness. Mature tannins match perfectly with the sapidity of this wine, making the Perno a noble, austere and full-body wine. The aging is one of the mainstays of this wine which gives its best when ripe. The
Perno is an extraordinary wine with great structure, balance and harmony and an amazing longevity.
