Tasting

COLOUR Impenetrable and brilliant ruby.

BOUQUET A range of insuperable fine aromas and sensations. Notes of plums in brandy, blackcurrant and blueberry jam, cloves and nutmeg leave the way to hints of star anise, violets and liquorice.

TASTE Powerful and fascinating at the same time, seductive for its personality and vitality, fresh yet remarkably fruity, finds its equilibrium in mature and round tannins and in its balanced acidity.

FOOD MATCHES Best served with tasty, structured dishes such as stuffed aubergine rolls, lasagne and hare stew. Seasoned and tasty cheeses are a very good match too.

SERVING TEMPERATURE 16-18 °C

GLASS Balloon for important red wines
