Rather intense ruby red in colour and moderately transparency. Fruity aromas (cherry, plum and black cherry) melded with tertiary notes resulting from ageing in casks, most commonly vanilla as well as licorice and black pepper. On the palate the opening flavours are rediscovered, that is, cherry, plum and black cherry, balanced by a pleasant softness and a final aftertaste of almonds.
It pairs perfectly with roast meats, especially pork, guinea-fowl and game. Excellent with mushroom-based dishes and medium-matured cheeses.
