The reddish brown edges were not very nice. Definitely the wrong colour, although it was an acceptable wine. This Valdivieso smells like violets. Acid, fresh, light.
Best drink paired.
My best friend had tried it and she recommended it to me.
I bought it in Uvinum and It arrived immediately.
I will buy it again, for sure.
