This wine is intense ruby red in colour. It is characterised by an embracing aroma with strong notes of red-berried fruits in perfect harmony with notes of spices and vanilla. It is rich, ample and persistent on the palate with a distinct but pleasant note of freshness, which is typical of this grape variety. It is ideal served with asparagus based dishes, soups and grilled peppers.
