Cherry-red in color with raspberry borders and medium intensity. The aromas range from red fruit like cherry and strawberry to Mediterranean herbs, black pepper, and vanilla, adding a hint of spice. The wine has medium volume on the palate, fine tannins, and thanks to its nervy acidity, a long, persistent finish.
This very versatile wine can be enjoyed with both sophisticated and simple dishes. Ideal to pair with red or white meat with either a black pepper, Roquefort, or garlic butter sauce. There’s also space for spicy foods like Indian or Mexican, or vegetarian dishes with mushrooms, bell peppers, potatoes, eggplant, or legumes.
