We had it with snacks. Special wine for couples.
As nearly all of them this one shows also a cherry colour. A smell quite well. Distinctive oxidation notes on the palate.

4/5

Intense ruby red. Aroma: the bouquet is extremely elegant, characterised by fragrant fruit and flower notes. Violet, cherries, wild berries, and plums are complemented by spicy hints of tobacco and white pepper grains. Delicate scents of roses and flint linger on the nose. Tasting profile: intense, velvety, and crispy. Sensations of fragrant fresh fruit are accompanied by steady yet gentle tannins that exalt enjoyable spicy flavors. The whole tasting sensation is enriched by a persistent finish, which is incredibly fresh with a pleasant minerality and presents an aftertaste with intriguing notes of rosemary.
