Tasting notes

Deep purple in colour, this is a bold and fresh wine, which develops aromas of red fruits punctuated with spicy notes. It is rugged and natural, with the earthiness of ferns and tobacco, all the while lifted by the ripeness of fruit. It is dense and wild but masterfully contained; a wine to sit back and savour.

Food pairing

Grilled and roast meat and poultry and cheese.
