A glistening ruby red color with shades of dark stone. The aromas of this spectacular wine balloons into the nose with a complex bouquet of red berries, rich tar, spicy wood, and fresh tobacco. Harmonious flavors come from the land on which the vines grow. Pleasant tannis, dry, and warming. Serve with your favorite savory chicken dish, meatballs and spaghetti, or with roasted meats such as Florentine Steak.
