Colour: deep ruby-red when young, tending to garnet with the time.
Nose: it has an intense, characteristically flowery and fruity bouquet.
Palate: a full persistent taste which is nicely dry and velvety. Very enjoyable one-two years after the harvest, its character and personality rounds off by further ageing in the bottle.
Food pairing: this wine deserves to be served with big dishes. Excellent with rich, flavoursome first courses, meat and cheese.
