Tasting :

Decided and intact red garnet colour; the scent is ethereal and decidedly rich of fragrant hints such as cherries, raspberry and wild strawberry. Then, even hints of dried flowers. Besides, we have the first spiced signs with cinnamon and vanilla. The taste is consistent: full, warm, intense, enveloping and tannic.

Wine Pairing :

It was approached with preference to the game, today its complexity and fullness do well with all red meats and cooked in various ways, from roasts to stews and braised local cuisine as well as international.
