Deep reddish purple. Opulent red fruit and distinctly spicy notes such as black pepper and cinammon on the nose. The luscious combination of fruit, spices and toasted notes is the result of this atypical blend of Petit Verdot and Malbec. In the mouth it is smooth, fruity and harmonious, echoing the same red and black fruit but also with bright notes of grenadine, complemented by violet and liquorice. L'Epicurius is a stunning surprise waiting to tempt the curious of palate!
