The wine is red-pomegranate with a purple tinge.
The taste of wine is juicy, structured, distinctly mineral, with expressive notes of blackberry and currant, nuances of nougat. A long tannic aftertaste is decorated with light strokes of lemon.
The exquisite, complex aroma of wine is full of shades of black berries, nuances of black cherry and tobacco accents. The bouquet is complemented by spicy notes and accents of chocolate.
The wine is ideally combined with beef, lamb, game dishes. It can be served with grilled vegetables, as well as vegetable purees and hot snacks.
