Wine of deep red color with garnet tints.
The taste of wine is clean and elegant, with fine structure and firm tannins, hints of spices, blueberries and other berries, hints of carob and coffee. The aftertaste is pleasant and long.
Generous bouquet of wine gives aromas of dark berries, dried cherries and citrus fruits on a background of the nuances of spices and cedar.
Wine perfectly complement the dishes of veal, lamb, roast, barbecue, mature cheeses.
