Tasting notes: Deep ruby red color clearly indicates its resistance to long-term aging. Fragrances from ripe fruits, vanilla, spices and bitter chocolate. A high complexity wine, that blends the fragrances of the fruits and the oak in a perfect balance. It is a puzzle even for the richest palates, round body, gentle and soft tannins.

Pair it with: Red meat, creamy sauce with spices and risotto with truffle oil. It fits perfectly with hard and aged cheeses.
