Wine intense burgundy-red color with highlights.
A full-bodied wine, velvety on the palate with a strong structure, balanced acidity and integrated tannins. The aftertaste is surprisingly long, with vanilla nuances.
The aroma of wine infused tones of ripe black currants, licorice, spices, light shades of leaf tobacco, coffee beans, cocoa and delicate nuances of menthol.
The wine is well combined with dishes of pork or lamb under a red sauce with seasoned cheeses.
