The color is dark red with a ruby tint. The aroma has tones of blackberry, currant, cherry and tobacco leaf. The palate is silky with hints of ripe cherries and black currants, with good freshness and a dense tannic texture. The aftertaste is slightly tart. The wine is well paired with meat dishes, game, pasta and cheeses. Aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels, then 12 months in a bottle.
