Wine bright ruby-red color.
Taste wine intense, deep, soft, dense, with hints of fruit, herb and vanilla nuances, juicy tannins.
Expressive and complex bouquet of wine reveals aromas of dark berries and red fruits, which are dominated by shades of cherry and plum notes of dark chocolate and nuances of graphite.
Wine is the perfect accompaniment to meat dishes, such as fried or braised beef or lamb, steak with mushroom sauce, venison.
