Intense garnet red with light brick-red tones on the rim. On the nose it unfolds from the first moment balsamic notes from the wood over a chocolate and coconut background, all of it surrounded with ripen red fruit preserve. It is quite obvious the tobacco and cedar wood presence as well. In the mouth it is full, slightly astringent and with a vivid acidity. Hints of cocoa and roasted wood strengthen, and the persistent finish create a mix difficult to describe: cigar box, fruit preserve, spices, liquorice, broom, leather.
It pairs perfectly with international food (curries, marinated fish and spicy dishes) and traditional red meats, game and cured cheeses.
