The dark purple colour with violet reflections retains all its intensity. The nose is dominated by an intense bouquet of cherries and plums followed by scents of chocolate, smoke and vanilla. Generous in the mouth, with good balanced and lively tannins contributing to a velvety structure. Long and fruity aftertaste, with a light touch of oak. It needs further ageing to reveal its full potential.
Serve at 17-18oC. It is seeking the company of grilled red meat and spicy game, as well as spicy and unctuous cheeses. It's a wine with a great potential of aging. It needs to be decanted before serving.
