Very earthy, yet with a pungently floral nose and accentuated fruit finish. So enjoyable.

Great wine. Medium body. Blend of red fruits, floral notes and even a little chocolate? Not too over-the-top.

More acidic than I would like but well balanced. The nose is wonderful and the lingering on the palate compliments.

Fun wine. Great with veal flank. Earthy let a bit floral at the same time.
