Tasting Notes

It is extremely rich in aromas. Intense aromas of black fruits and pleasant spicy hints, especially leather and tobacco literally delight the nose. On the palate it is succulent and reminiscent of sour black cherry accompanied by hints of mint, toasting and espresso coffee. In tasting it is elegant, subtle and well-balanced.


Ideal with recipes based on red meat and game. Excellent with roast wild duck.
