Gostaria de o provar com carpaccio. Provei com uns amigos degustadores.
Mistura de vermelho e castanho. O tinto tem aromas de fumado. Ficou melhor um pouco mais fresco.

4 /5

Det er en typisk supermarkedsvin.
Ganske matt farge. Lukt av rosa og hvite blomster. En interresant vin fra Viñedos del Contino, den var litt bitter mot slutten.
