The intense and dark colour reveals a seductive olfactory impact and a firm structure. The ripe fruity fragrance encompasses a nose of blackcurrant, black cherry and blueberry. These aromas mingle in the French oak, where the “élevage” process of wine takes place for about 24 months.

The wine matches with all kinds of meat and aged cheese as well; these pairings carry out a great sensorial experience.
