Wine rich ruby color.
The taste of wine is made of light tannins and a touch of red fruits and berries on a background of earth tones. Persistent aftertaste shows a beautiful fresh fruit character.
Pleasant fruity aroma of the wine is composed mainly of shades of red and black berries, which are lavishly decorated with earthy hues.
The wine will be a nice pair of meat dishes, Italian pasta and cheese. Before use, it is recommended to decant.
