In the winery of Fabrizio Battaglino, on the beautiful Roero hills in the province of Cuneo, is produced a really good full bodied red wine, the Langhe d.o.c. Ancreus 2007.
Ruby with garnet nuances, it has an intense fruity fragrance of cherry and soft fruits with grassy and floreal hints (violet) and percepitions of cocoa and leather due to the barrel aging.
The taste is full and well bodied, dry and with a nice sapidity and tannicity. It is quite warm (13,5 °C of alcohol).
Because of its good structure it is perfect if combined with tasty dishes based on red meat and game such as roasts, boiled meat, stewes.
It has to be served at 18 °C and breathed for half an hour to help the release of fragrances.
