Characteristics of wine

Organoleptic characteristics

The bouquet is intense, persistent but delicate. It evokes blackberry and blueberry jams. The taste is sweet, warm and slightly tannic. One of a kind, the structure expresses a great full body and extremely mellow. The close is very persistent and pleasant.

Serving temperature and food pairing

Serve at 17-18°. It’s wonderful with local desserts such as red fruit jam tarts and biscuits, but with mature cheeses as well. Excellent paired with dark chocolate. Traditional wine to sip and meditate over, which has an aging potential of around 10-15 years.
