Tasting Notes
Clear, intense ruby red color with purple reflections, consistent.
On the nose the sample is: floral, fruity, spicy and toasted. Pleasant aromas of violet flowers open the range of the bouquet including violet and lavender, followed by captivating notes of ripe dark berry fruits including cassis and myrtle, spicy hints of juniper berries and ground black pepper accompany them, empyheumatic aromas of black coffee and “charred” caramel are accompanied by woody and balsamic notes.
A wine with varied and captivating aromas with a strong impact on the taste. Time still has to give a way to balance the soft and hard parts of the wine, the tannin is still a little restless.
It is recommended in combination with stewed woodcock with black olives.
