Appearance: wine of cherry red color with garnet hues and shades of orange at the rim, beautifully preserved. Nice density, clean and bright. Thick and very glyceric legs will appear, when swirling the glass.
Nose: clean and straightforward wine with great aromatic intensity. Its aroma of red and black fruit, wild fruit and black berries is perfectly blended in with the light toasted, smoky, caramelized and spicy notes provided by its aging in French oak casks.
As you swirl your glass, the wine will evolve progressively and yield different sensations, all of them pleasant.
Palate: well-balanced, powerful wine with nice acidity. Presence of sweet, embracing and perfectly polished tannins. This wine is round and caresses the palate with soft and silky sensations. Each sip leaves a lingering aftertaste with nice persistence displaying retronasal aromas of ripe red fruit, spices and light toasty hints.
Pairing: a well-crafted, balanced wine with concentration, a good choice to accompany red meet, feathered game and roasts. It is also recommended to pair with stewed or spiced meat dishes as it enhances the hidden flavors of the meat.
