TASTING

Here we have a black-cherry coloured wine with very good depth and a deep robe.
On the nose you can find reminders of black fruit, a touch of highly balsamic liquorice, spicy notes (white pepper), subtle hints of toasted aromas, coffee and slightly mineral nuances. This combination of aromas makes the wine complex and elegant.
A silky-smooth wine, where the tannin can be found, rich and meaty, revealing youthfulness. Very good acidity which makes this wine long and fresh.
Full in body with a very long, open aftertaste.

It can be paired with grilled red meat and grilled rock-dwelling fish.
