This wine has an intense ruby colour and develops an expressive bouquet where red fruits go well with spicy, vanilla and coconut notes left over from a twelve-month stay in barrels.
This balance is found in a silky, round, supple palate, with good volume, supported by quality tannins. A well-bred wine, with a beautiful structure and a beautiful length.
Steak with boletus mushrooms, duck breast and roasted figs with honey.
