Tasting Notes

The wine is an intense ruby red with light scarlet highlights. The bouquet is sweet and fruity with scents of blueberry, cherry, currant and Californian plum accompanied by an underlying hint of toasted and spiced aromas. In the mouth the wine generous, soft and rounded. The intense notes of ripe fruit are evident on the palate and open up a long and harmonious finish characterised by an elegant and pleasant freshness.

Serving suggestions

The wine is well suited to accompany stewed or panfried meats and roasted pork. Ideal with hare and boar, it is also pleasant with savoury cheeses.
