Intensive purple with a violet rim. Animating nose, densely layered aromas of cooked sour cherries, sweet, very dark cherries and black berries, completed by a touch of chocolate. Fruit-driven, additionally blue May-flowers. Dry, round spiciness, well integrated into a soft body which hinds its muscles behind fine tannins. Wide aroma spectrum of sun ripened fruits and spices, full-bodied, juicy and powerful lfinish which asks for more.
Very versatile food companion – particularly to kick off a party!! Backed potaoes with truffles and egg yolk,… to match powerful soups made of smoked pork, beans or even pot barley. Why not together with the usual pizza in case you are in a hurry. Or accompanying a late breakfast with smoked fish or an early brunch serving potato-goulash. Cheese bread and harissa or a powerful Brettljause (cold meat dishes) like to be seduced by the TRIE.
