Bright garnet red in colour. The nose is characterised by the original aromas of this grape variety: fruity notes of red and black cherry, but also floral notes such as rose, finishing with a touch of spice. In the mouth it is lacy, fresh and fruity at the same time with soft but expressive tannins. It is a variety that produces unpretentious, honest wines that offer the simple pleasure of red fruit such as strawberry, grenadine, cherry and redcurrant. 2018, with its wet spring, suited this grape perfectly. We like it over a plate of charcuterie, with an impromptu barbecue, but above all, with friends.
