Wine of deep crimson color with "young" purple reflections.
Taste wines intense and generous, well-balanced, with excellent structure and depth, nice concentrated fruit, notes of ripe black currants, shrouded in shades of dried herbs, mint and dill, subtle nuances of oak and silky tannins.
In the fresh aroma of the wine tones of black currant, mint and eucalyptus infused with notes of milk chocolate and various spices.
Excellent wine with meat dishes: roast duck with thyme and garlic, warm salad of lamb or filet glazed veal medallions.
