Tasting Notes
Upon visual examination the sample is limpid, of a very intense garnet red color, of good consistency.
The nose opens with floral hints reminiscent of a potpourri of delicately withered red flowers, followed by a scent of ripe dark berries, blackberry, currant and blueberry, there is also a note of durone cherries. Hints of undergrowth leave the perfume with notes of frayed tobacco and eucalyptus.
On the palate the sip is supported by a good tannic texture, velvety, well balanced in its components, along the aftertaste of chocolate and coffee.
It is recommended in combination with dishes with games.
