Organoleptic description

The color is a very intense ruby-purple red. The nose expresses a complex floral and fruity bouquet, with notes of violets, currants and black cherry in the foreground. The mouth entry is firm and denotes excellent body, which is never at the expense of drinkability. Long and harmonious on the finish reminiscent of fruit. Suggested serving temperature: 14-15° C.
