Foi dado numa degustação de tinto.
Cor vermelha e orla violeta. Aromas apetitosos de alcaçuz e menta. Passava como água.
Bebi a acompanhar o bolo de anos.

Vega Sicilia Unico Gran Reserva Tinto 1996

4 /5

Auf einer Verkostung hatten wir das Vergnügen, ihn zu probieren.
Sehr intensives rubinrot. Riecht nach roten und gelben Rosen. Hintergründig kam ein zartes Röstaroma hervor.
Passt hervorragend zu einem Kartoffelauflauf.

4 /5

Het smaakte me met het gegrild rundvlees die we aten. Ik gebruikte het thuis met een paar goede vrienden.
Bigarreau kersen, van hoge intensiteit. Meestal chocolade geur. De fles was slecht en rook naar fosfor.
