Reviews of purchase Campillo, "Gran Reserva", 2009
Wine magical cherry-red color with a ruby rim.
A taste of the wine, balanced and well structured, with expressive notes of ripe fruit, with spicy nuances and a long aftertaste.
The wine has a seductive aroma with notes of ripe fruit, complemented by spicy and balsamic undertones.
The wine goes well with strong cheeses, roasted suckling pig, beef carpaccio with parmesan cheese, steak tartare sauce.
