Visual: intense bright cherry-red wine with lighter tawny hints. Beautiful legs produces by glycerin.
Aromas: concentration of aromas of ripe black fruit, licorice, violets and vanilla on top of spices and toasted bread.
Taste: Balanced in the mouth, there is a powerful backtaste and a long pleasurable finish to this elegant wine. It will open up and improve for hours in the glass. Great potential to age in the bottle.
Serving suggestions: Very good with roast meat, grills, duck in orange sauce, pork in mustard, mature and semimature cheese, venison in red wine, grilled wild mushrooms, casseroles, Iberian ham and so on.
