Wine ruby red color with purple hues.
The taste of wine is well structured, balanced, with ripe tannins, notes of cherries, dark chocolate and coffee beans combined with a pleasant shade of oak wood.
In a beautiful bouquet of fruit and berry wines dominated by aromas of cherry, black currant blackberries, figs and plums, subtle notes of spice and leather.
