Tasting Notes
Clear sample, purplish red in color with ruby red textures, of good consistency.
On the nose it is complex with floral, fruity, spicy and toasted hints. Hints of violet, followed by an aroma of ripe cherry, over-macerated plum and cassis. Spicy hints of licorice, cloves and caramel with cocoa powder and freshly ground coffee finish.
The sip is rich and opulent. Perfectly balanced sample in its parts, persistent and with an important but silky tannin.
It is recommended in combination with a Florentine steak.
