A purple-flecked, dark red impresses the eye with its richness. The nose first conveys graceful floral notes of sweet violet and a tasty amalgam of sour black cherry, dried plum, and raspberry, which is soon enriched with spicy nuances of vanilla. A notably refreshing crispness marks the
entire progression of the wine in the mouth, as well as dense-packed, youthful tannins that are, however, already quite well integrated into the structure. It concludes with a generous, warm finish.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Barbecued meat and beef
