The colour is a dark ruby red with bright reflections. The bouquet is very characteristic and complex, with spicy notes of white pepper, redcurrants, blueberries, citron and a fresh, balsamic note. Lively, flawless and crisp fruit develops dynamically and progressively on the palate. The tannins are tightly woven, sweet and spicy, with an exceptionally fine grain. The long, well-structured finish promises a great outlook. A wine which, even at its tender age, marries character with balance, while concealing great and complex potential.
Much like all SOPRA wines, this wine goes well with hearty meat dishes. This well-balanced red wine goes wonderfully with starters and main courses. The spicy nature of its bouquet makes this wine an excellent accompaniment to meals with hot and spicy components, as well as mushroom dishes.
Serving temperature: 16 – 18° C
