Intense, ruby red color. Expressive nose with notes of raspberries, bilberries and cherries, enlivened by a touch of spice and a depth of vanilla. Charming fruit in the mouth with good structure that highlights concentrated flavors and fleshy tannins. Nice complexity on tasting resulting in good length. Thanks to a rigorous selection from our best "cuvees" for 2007 Crianza, this wine retains in full the character from top quailty grapes.
A perfect accopaniment to Mediterranean cuisine, fried food, grilled vegtables, pulses, pallea and other rice dishes, pasta fish in tomato sauce, ham, chorizo, pate, beef(roast stewed or grilled) and cheese(mild or medium matured).
Smooth & Supple
