Tasting notes: “Medium intense garnet color. A delicate nose with red cherries and a hint of raspberry. The elegant character of the wine continues to show on the palate with light, fine and only slightly grippy tannins, charming red fruit character with cherries, a bit of pomegranate and rosehip. The 14,5 % alcohol makes the wine smooth, generous and provides some length without being aggressive. Very drinkable and though it will easily keep for a few more years it will not greatly improve anymore.”
