The wine is ruby red, deep but still not very dense in color. Over time, the color will become more saturated.
The bouquet is already quite intense, fruity, with a distinct aroma of prunes and cherries. After some time, opening up in the fresh air, the wine begins to offer more shades. You can taste wild berries and dark chocolate. The wine is dense and full-bodied, with quite ripe tannins and very dynamic to the finish. The finish is long and smooth.
Food pairings: This Merlot goes well with not very fatty meat dishes, game or veal.
