Tasting notes:

An intense and pleasant open bouquet shows lots of fruit character, scents of flowers and hints of spices. On the palate full bodied and creamy, soft, but built on a solid backbone of fine tannins. A beautiful sweet extract and a touch of minerality and the fresh acidity does balance the wine. Ready to drink but with a nice potential of at least 5 years.

With all kind of meat dishes or pastas.
