The wine has an attractive nose, which reminds of violets, plums, black berries, cherries and peppery spices. On the palate the wine is full and rounded, with soft tannins and a rich taste of black berries and plums. The elegant finish is long and pleasant. This wine is best matched to red meats, wild game and vegetables that are roasted or grilled with olive oil, herbs and garlic. It will also pair well with pizza, pasta and cheese.
