Tasting Notes:

The 2012 Terra is a classic from a very balanced year. Dark colour with violet hints. It shows an open and perfumed bouquet with lots of floral and red fruit notes and some dried orange zest. It is soft and creamy with a mild but present tannic structure and has an excellent persistence of fruit and ends with a touch of vanilla. The balance is excellent and it never shows too heavy or over extracted. If stored below 15°C it will last well over the next 6 years.

Todos os pratos de carne, massas ou sozinho.
