Intense purplish red color. Plums and red fruits aromas stand out together with notes of violets, chocolate, and vanilla. These last two descriptors are due to its long aging in oak barrels. It keeps fresh fruits, it is a fleshy, long, deep wine of good balance with ripe and sweet tannins on palate. Ideal combination with red meat and haute cuisine dishes. Semi-hard and hard smoked cheeses with long aging.
