A silky, sweet red wine that's full of blackberries, prunes and cherry fruits on the palate. What makes this more interesting are the slight tannins that add structure to this medium-bodied red wine. Finishes with a dose of minerals. You can drink this as an apèritif, some prefer it as a dessert wine. Your choice.

A silky, sweet red wine that's full of blackberries, prunes, and cherry fruits on the palate. What makes this bottle truly interesting is the slight touch of tannin giving structure to this medium-bodied wine. It finishes with a nice dose of minerals.
