Any kind of meat. It matches with grilled or fried potatoes, mushrooms or ham. Some tasty or oily fish such as tuna, cod. Medium-aged cheese and berry dessert. Rice and all kind of pasta.
Dried herb and forest floor notes frame cherry and sandalwood flavors in this savory red. Light tannins give this a supple texture, enlivened by orange peel acidity. Drink now through 2022.
