Winemaker's Notes

Shows intense aromas of plum, black cherry and exotic spices, with notes of coffee and vanilla from the oak barrels. The flavors on the palate are fresh, with good structure and soft tannins, and the finish is full and concentrated, with spice notes.

This wine is quite approachable, fun and easy-to-drink, perfect for every-day consumption and for relaxed, casual food like Panini sandwiches, pizza and beef or pork empanadas.
