tasting note

A very bright and lively violet-red in color with a predominance of ripe red and black fruit aromas such as strawberries, plums, and figs on the nose. Notes of crème de cassis intermingle with sweet spices such as nutmeg and black pepper. Aromas of tobacco and dark chocolate meld with light notes of leather contributed by the French oak that also lends sweet sensations to the palate. The wine stands out for its well-balanced acidity, medium body, and incredibly smooth tannins. The moderately persistent finish echoes the notes perceived on the nose.

food pairing

Highly recommended with braised beef with french fries, steak and eggs, paella, cannelloni, and lasagna.
