Wine beautiful purple color.
Elegant, well-structured wine with light shades of red fruits, nice rounded tannins and a hint of oak in the long finish.
Velvety, spicy aroma of the wine reveals hints of plum, licorice and cooked fruits.
Wine, thanks to its complex flavor, goes well with many dishes of red meat, game, mature cheeses and mushroom dishes.
