This wine has a great body and structure. Its colour is an intense garnet red and it is tinged with orange. The scent of forest fruits becomes delicate ad the wine refines, harmonising with the vanilla note conveyed fu the wood.
It accompanies savoury dishes such as roast meat of game and cheeses of bright flavours. It is very important to serve this wine at a temperature of 16-18° C.
