Dark ruby to the rim, initially spicy fragrance with mint, stewed black elder and cedar wood, doing without maturation in barrique barrels results in an inspiring varietal fruitiness. Dry, dark fruits with delicate notes of green tea and hints of dark chocolate, present but pleasant tannins, vibrating structure and again a mix of black berries and a fine fruity finish.
With tapas of olives over barbecue bacon or peperonata to smoked game, chilli omelette, creamy goose soup, special breads and luxury salami, refined stews with pep and much more.
