Tasting

An intense red garnet colour. On the nose, aromas of red and black ripe fruit (kirsch and wild Blackberry) are dominant. The mouth is full, with aromas of blackcurrant liquor and Spice. Tannins are both harmonious and elegant thanks to the fleshy of the wine. The end develop hints of liquorice and vanilla, which give to the wine length and complexity.
