Tasting Notes:

Intense color. The deep concentration of red fruits where the currant predominates evolves into spicy, fresh and balsamic notes. In the mouth, the rich and round body opens up with dense tannins, characterized by a great evolutionary harmony. Fresh, intense and balsamic, its long persistence is leaded by its prominent acidity.

15-20 days of maceration.

 

Food Pairing:

Important plates, such as red meat and game. It is also perfect with dark chocolate and in a contemplating environment, such as whilst enjoying a cigar.
