Organoleptic notes:
Intense ruby red color with garnet hues, of almost impenetrable intensity, it presents itself on the nose with an olfactory succession where hints of ripe black berry fruit, such as black currant and black cherry, spicy notes, boisè as well as a pleasant and clear toasted note predominate.
On the palate it proves to be structured, balanced and enveloping in the mouth, slightly savory, with an important tannic texture and a closure that is nevertheless fresh to denote great acidity.
Very persistent in the retro-olfactory as well.
Meat-based first courses, braised and stewed meats in general, furry game.
