Winemaker's Notes

Colour: deep red with blue shades.

Aroma: intensely aromatic. This wine emphasises red fruits, cassis and jam. Hints of rosemary together with vanilla and caramel give the wine a unique complexity.

Consumption suggestions: enjoy with red meats, cheeses and pasta dishes. Serve between 16° and 18°C.
