Description

TASTING NOTES

A wine with deep red and intense colour, elegant aromas of lifted fruit with a slight mintiness and herbaceous, varietal characters combined with suspicions of smoky oak forming a well-integrated and complex nose.
The palate is long, full and round, well balanced with silky smooth tannins. The same aromas as the nose at the end-palate create a harmonious wine that fully respects the grape varieties and its region of origin. Bright and zesty.

FOOD SUGGESTIONS

This is a fragrant, full-bodied wine that instantly conjures up images of lamb cutlets or kebabs or even moussaka enjoyed under a warm Mediterranean night sky glowing with stars. Pasta or other grilled meats prepared with tomatoes and herbs in the classic Mediterranean way served at room temperature are other potential matches.It will go well with a great deal of dishes, from roasted meat and casseroles, but also dishes based on mushrooms and mild cheeses that do not counter the fruity character of the wine. Drink it at 160C.
