This classic dessert wine bears a deep orange-red color with brown tints. The nose is complex, ranging from sweet spices like cinnamon and cloves towards dried fruits such as apricots and raisins. Prolonged maturation of three years in oak barrels, delivers a mellow, velvety character, while balances the kicking acidity and reveals notes of honey and lemon.
Perfect as an aperitif or as a dessert accompanied by fruits. You can also enjoy it with dishes based on white meat or fish.
