A deep black cherry colour with complex aromas reminiscent of ripe red berries, spices as anise, white pepper and black licorice in harmony with mocha and toasty aromas. As fateful as the aroma is, there is also a balance and freshness, an energy that allows the wine to be very playful and precocious, accented by the spice of habaneras aroma. The mouth presents a great front-to-back seamlessness, with fine continuity and length. What gives this wine its length is the vibrant acid and balance tannins. Pleasing with an agreeable finish.
Enjoy with seafood, salads and goat cheese.
