TASTING NOTES: It displays an intense ruby red color and, on the nose, sweet fruity notes (redcurrants, blueberries and cherries) as well as a characteristic hint of vanilla from the oak. It is particularly majestic on the palate: its soft, warming sensations are counterpointed by good acidity and excellent tannins that give gratifying balance. This is an elegant wine, but one of enviable and noteworthy structure.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: A wine that can be enjoyed on its own, but also perfect with grilled red meats, goulash, game or mature cheeses.
