Wine dense purple-blue.
The taste of the wine is full, luxurious, rich, elastic texture, velvety tannins and an incredibly long finish.
The wine has a soft, enchanting aroma, in which notes are intertwined black raspberry, blueberry and licorice nuances of camphor and smoke.
Wine in harmony with the veal dishes, beef and pork. Perfectly set off the taste of mature cheeses.
