Wine of deep red color with crimson hues.
Taste wine juicy, rich, bright, with notes of ripe plum, dark berries, balanced acidity, grainy tannins and a long finish.
In the pleasant aroma of wine notes of plum and mulberry interwoven with hints of dark chocolate, anise, cinnamon and sweet oak nuances.
Wine is perfect for pork chop with vegetables such as home coleslaw and french fries.
