Tasting

Colour : deep black hue flecked with purple.
Nose : reductive nose with notes of graphite, black fruit jelly and laurel, complemented by hints of cedar and fig leaves.
Mouth : broad on entry, then big on the mid-palate with velvety tannins. Shows nice balance between freshness
and power with an aromatic range dominated by spices, nice ripe black fruit and sooty notes.

skewers of beefs and vegetables marinated in pesto.
