Wine of deep ruby color with a purple hue.
Taste wine shows shades of raspberry, cherry and mocha, and a good balance of sweet aftertaste.
The aroma of wine is different ascetic simplicity, combining in itself notes of leather, espresso coffee and grape must.
The wine goes well with dishes of white and red meat, mature cheeses and poultry.
