Dark amaranth red. Wild strawberry, raspberry and black cherry, with wild rose, and a bit of white pepper. Smooth and structured on the palate because of the tannins and fresh thanks to the acidity. Shows remarkable richness and extract, as well as an intriguingly gritty nuance that makes it very versatile with food.
