Tasting Notes
Limpid, moderately intense garnet red color with small garnet textures, consistent.
On the olfactory examination the bouquet of perfumes is variegated and complex. Withered red flowers, they give way to an aroma of red fruits in jam, accompanied by hints of undergrowth, a cigar box with a closure of balsamic herbs.
Opulent sip, with an important tannic texture still in the evolution phase. Unique persistence and acidity.
It is recommended in combination with braised wild boar.
