Winemaker's Notes:

This Carmenere has a very attractive red-violet colour with blue tones. In this wine you find ripe fig, black and red berries mixed with chocolate notes. In mouth, an intense fruity sensation comes up, with some coffee notes. It is well-structured, with smooth and silky tannins.

Ideal for lamb or spicy Middle Eastern cuisine.
