ADVICE

TASTING

This wine has a very intense color, a beautiful shine with a ruby red color. Its very delicate, fine and elegant nose, with notes of elderberry, wild black berries, with spices that mixes with the bouquet. On the palate, a frank attack with lots of roundness and very fine tannins. We find aromas of ripe fruit berries with a spicy touch.

 

Service

Serve at 16°C.
