Wine clean and bright ruby color with light purple hues.
Full-bodied, dense and stable taste wine reveals notes of red and black berries combined with pleasant notes of coffee and oak. Complements this palette lasting aftertaste with soft tannins.
Bright, fresh and slightly spicy aroma of ripe cherries, raspberries and strawberries combined with nice notes of coffee beans and cocoa.
The wine goes well with white meat dishes, snacks and light cheeses. In addition, almost any dish cooked with mushrooms, will blend in perfectly with this wine. Also very good wine to serve sushi, carpaccio of salmon, pork and homemade pasta.
