Tasting notes: Dark and intense ruby red in colour, the bouquet displays aromas of blackberry, red currant, herbal notes and sweet spices; a smooth taste on the palate, with elegant velvety tannins, a vein of acidity well-integrated with the body of the wine. Long finish. Excellent pairing with meat and game food or to share informal moments.
