Tasting Notes
Sample with an intense ruby red color, impenetrable, with a good consistency.
The nose immediately expresses its character. Complex in the bouquet of its hints that open with floral notes reminiscent of a pot pourri of red flowers, followed by fruity hints where the cherry in alcohol emerges. Closing of undergrowth and a nuance of licorice completes it.
In the mouth what is perceived with the olfactory examination is confirmed. The sip is rich, balanced in its components, well structured, with a well-smoothed, important, but not aggressive tannin. Very persistent finish.
It is recommended in combination with wild boar stew with stewed vegetables.
