The wine is dark ruby color.
Rounded wine has a rich, full-bodied taste with notes of berries, ripe fruit, with subtle notes of chocolate and smoke. The finish is incredibly long, with silky tannins.
The wine is full of aromas of berries, licorice, mocha, violets, refreshing mineral undertones.
Wine perfectly accentuate the taste of roasted pork, sauteed spinach, vegetable salads, risotto and sweet pastries.
