It has a powerful, floral nose with hints of tar and green tobacco. On the palate there is fresh blackberry and red plum, finishing with liquorice and mineral elements.
Store and Serve Advices:
Store the bottle horizontally in a dark place with constant temperature, ideally between 12ºC and 15ºC.
This wine will surely make any lunch or dinner a memorable one. It is a fabulous accompaniment to chocolate desserts, such as chocolate pudding, but can also be enjoyed on its own - it is an experience in itself.
