Its colour is bright red
The first impression in its aroma is that of the barrel’s wood, while notes of white pepper and cumin start to develop discreetly.
In the mouth it seems young with pungent tannins which create however, a pleasant ensemble. Warm mouth-feel with good acidity, firm tannins, and lingering red fruit and spice.
Ideally paired with rich dishes; grilled or stewed (veal & casseroles), yellow, spicy cheeses, or fricassee of lamb with lettuce
