Colour

Deep ruby-red with violet highlights.

Bouquet

The fine, fruity bouquet has very persistent, clear-cut overtones of blackberries and raspberries melted with overtones of plums and black cherries.

Flavour

The taste is pleasantly dry, and its strong almondy aftertaste brings out its fullness and velvety stuffing with slight tannins, making for a highly agreeable, fine balance.

Pairing

It is excellent served with hot starters, pasta dishes, vegetables and not over-elaborate meats.
