Purple with a dark cherry-red rim, dense tears. Spicy aroma spectrum of black cherries, sour cherry cake, chocolate chips, touch of vanilla, sun-ripened blackberries, rosewood slightly toasted, juniper and blackthorn faintly perceptible. Dry, powerfully structured, with substantial-smooth tannins which appear as if dipped into cherry-chocolate. Characteristic and inviting. These muscles grew without steroids. Animating fruit sweetness nevertheless supported by “Rust minerality”, framed by a vivacious glow. Long finish with a promising ageing potential.


Every type of goose dish (goose potage, goose terrine, roast goose), rolled roast veal with marjoram jus, tournedos of wild boar crusted with black pepper, pecorino with olive oil and nut bread, companion in decisive conceptional situations, in the evening and so on.
