The red wines have a ruby colour that darkens with the years, reaching an intense garnet. On the nose, the young wines have aromas of redcurrant, strawberry, and with the age of the aromas like toasted, leather and cocoa that are added to the bouquet. Tannins are very present in the youth but with time the wine acquires softness, finesse and roundness.

You can also accompany an entire meal, up to a dessert with red fruit or chocolate.
