4 /5

It was given to us in a wine tasting stand of red.
The reddish brown edges were not very nice. Definitely the wrong colour, although it was an acceptable wine. It smells like candy. Quite clear presence of plum in the mouth.
It was served together with the appetizer.

Great for romantic evenings.
Red colour and violet edges. You can appreciate the tobacco smell. Although I prefer less sweet wines, this one it was good.
Perfect for starters and appetizers.

The wine is purchased at Uvinum, right?.
Intense ruby colour. The main aromas were coffee and wood. Bitter end.
