TASTING NOTES

Dark cherry colour with violet reflections. Clean and very bright. Dense and abundant tears.

Mellow and seductive nasal aromas with a medium-high intensity. Its notes of very ripe fruit and jam (prunes and blueberries) stand out on a background of earthy notes and aromatic herbs

It is direct at the attack and shows a good, light and silky mid palate. A well-bodied wine with a good tannic sensation and a refreshing acidity. Long finish with a marked persistence. A joyful, casual and lively red wine.

Ideal with Stews, Rice with meat, Sausages , Roasted red meats , Mushrooms , Sheep's Cheese .
