Tasting: It has a nice cherry color with a leaden border. On the nose it is very fruity, elegant, with aromas reminiscent of black plum, fig and red fruits, like blackberry; it also has the scent of typical flowers of the area such as thyme and rosemary. The palate is straight, somewhat astringent, while fruity. It stands out for the presence of aniseed flavors, candied plum, wood reminiscences, and a pleasant final acidity. The result is a pleasant and fresh wine very oriented towards gastronomy. 8 €.



Pairing: Given its characteristics, it is a wine that pairs with numerous dishes, ranging from various meats, blue fish, to fresh cheeses, sausages, mushrooms, etc.
