Wine style: Medium-bodied, typical Rhônestyle characteristics. Nose: Lively aromas of black currant, blueberry
and cherry, intertwined with subtle whiffs of vanilla. Palate: Beautifully balanced by layers of dark fruit and oak spice flavours, with a well defined tannin structure, ensuring a lingering after-taste.

This wine is the perfect partner to Italian fare, wood-fire grilled meats and strong, hard cheeses.
