This wine has an intensely bright ruby colour. On the nose, it is distinctive for its fruity aroma of crisp ripe cherry, black currant, blackberry and raspberry; it is delicately spicy with some laurel and tarragon, slightly ethereal, playful and complex. On the palate, the wine is full with plenty of structure, pronounced tannins, stimulating acidity and berry fruit. It is youthfully unsophisticated and elegantly rustic. Best enjoyed at room temperature with braised shoulder of beef, pan-seared cutlets of lamb and Mediterranean grilled vegetables. To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 3 years.
