Tasting Notes
Limpid, purplish red color with light ruby reflections, good consistency.
The sample has a fairly wide variety of scents: floral, fruity and herbaceous. Notes of fresh red flowers, fresh fruit such as berries and plums, nuances of tomato leaf.
Sample with fairly balanced components, with a not accentuated tannin, good freshness, but still intense and persistent and of fine quality.
It is recommended in combination with pork fillet flavored with Mediterranean herbs.
