This wine has a beautiful deep colour with glints of ruby and a seductive, fruity bouquetwith scents of red fruit and cherries. The palate is superb, revealing supple tannins from well-ripened grapes accompanied by notes of undergrowth. Smooth finish. A wine with a great deal of charm.
Perfect with red meats and also with soft cheese.
