The colour is both intense and brilliant while the bouquet is full of beautiful red fruit aromas. It is ample and appealing in the mouth with a finish that has a slightly toasty character. Thanks to its good balance, this is a wine that can be enjoyed even when young.

It will marry well with white meats such as roast chicken, veal chops with mushrooms or roast rack of lamb.
