Elegant dark beauty
A strong character that doesn’t give in. A wine that pairs well with hearty mains but is equally good on its own.
In matters of taste, there can be no disputes – and neither in matters of smell. It is full of tannins, velvety, dense, persisting. Its color is a dark shade of red, the taste reminds of dark berries and a touch of bittersweet raw cacao.
This is a wine for One Thousand and One Nights, and you might want to enjoy it with a piece of dark chocolate…
