Tasting notes

An intense red colour, with garnet nuances. Typical and marked notes of plum, cherry and morello cherry on the nose, followed by a wide variety of tones: nuts, tea leaves, liquorice and spices. On the palate, overtones of red berry fruit, softened by velvety notes of vanilla, in perfect balance with the acidity and tannic notes.

Food pairings

It can be paired with red meat, game and mature cheese, but it is also perfect at the end of a meal and as a “conversation” wine.
