The wine is intense dark ruby color. A dense fruity bouquet with the expected presence of black currant with spicy notes of wild cherry and coniferous forest. The taste is distinctly dry, delicate with a slight astringency. Ripe tannins and soft, lively acids make the wine pleasant and drinkable. The finish is long and slightly mineral.
Medium rare steak, roast or grilled lamb. Also great in combination with semi aged and semi-hard cheeses. Serving temperature: 16 - 18 °C.
