Wine of deep ruby-purple color.
Taste wine dense, lush, fresh, silky, bright, round, with lively acidity, notes of cherry, raspberry, currant, blackberry jam and blueberry pie, mixed with hints of incense, subtle hints of oak and lots of floral notes. In the long aftertaste, along with notes of plum, tobacco, cocoa, chocolate felt well integrated nuances of anise.
The wine has a delicious aroma, woven from the notes of espresso, caramel, red and black fruit, nuances of cocoa, ripe berries of black raspberry and chocolate.
The wine goes well with grilled red meats, stews, mature cheeses.
