TastingBrilliant, intense ruby colour with purplish glints, this wine reveals a fruity and sustained bouquet that blends floral scents of violet and ripe fruit. Supple and lingering in the mouth, we perceive dark berry fruits and violets accompanied by expressive tannins. It is an easy-going wine that can be combined with cold meats, grilled meats, white and red meats, and strong cheeses.
