Wine of deep ruby color with light purple rim.
Excellent balanced wine with pure fruit flavors with hints of red berries and a long aftertaste, which appear very elegant mineral notes of the local terroir.

Wine excellent match with salmon, duck Peking, meat dishes with spices. Interestingly, combined with steak in teriyaki sauce with wasabi or with baked pheasant with mushrooms
