Tasting Notes
Clear, intense ruby red color with purple reflections, consistent.
On the nose the sample is intense, complex in the variety of its scents and of fine quality. Hints of red wildflowers, wisteria and iris, red fruits such as cherry and raspberry, wet gravel, black pepper, cinnamon and saffron, notes of tobacco, toasted hazelnut and licorice.
On the palate the sample is fresh, with non-invasive tannins, balanced in its parts, with a moderate persistence and fine quality.
It is recommended in combination with jugged hare.
