Wine inky purple color.
The wine has a deep, rounded, well structured fruity taste with velvety tannins, which are felt tones of black currant, blackberry, dark chocolate and coffee.
In an intense aroma of wine felt notes of black currant, cherry, pomegranate and floral shades.
The wine is recommended to serve dishes of meat, game and cheeses.
