Tasting notes
Intense ruby red with very light garnet hues. The impact on the nose is sweet with elegant fruity notes of black cherry and canned berries (cassis and black mulberry), the enveloping aroma is amplified by spicy vanilla nuances, cloves and cinnamon. In the glass it opens up with hints of milk chocolate and roasted coffee. Its fruity palate is definitely of blackcurrant. The wine is dynamic and fresh with fine tannins that strengthen and lengthen the sip, without weighting down the structure. The finish is savoury and tasty with citrus and morello cherry on which spicy aromas of sweet liquorice are grafted.
