Sommelier's opinion

An elegant, enchanting wine, with very balanced tannins and a long finish. If opened at least an hour before, it will conquer you sip by sip with its fruity aftertaste and toasted and spicy notes.

A red reserve, already good and very pleasant but which will surely improve in the first 5 years of aging. Probably one of the wines with the best value for money you can buy.

If you find it at around € 12-13 it's a must-have.
