Tasting :

Intense and deep ruby red colour with bright garnet hues. The flavour of leather and flint in the background revives the typical notes of maraschino cherry and violet, which are precise and really intense. Notes of tobacco and caramel appear later on and make this wine complex and fascinating. Very well structured, sapid and fresh. Its great balance makes this wine very charming and elegant. The result is a wine of great precision and intensity.

Wine Pairing :

Perfect with all roasted meats and game, braised beef, cheeses and all tasty dishes.
