Tasting Notes

‘Divoto’ is ruby red in color with garnet highlights. The bouquet is inviting with aromas of ripe red fruit, notes of spices, cloves and coffee beans. On the palate it is very structured, full-bodied with lush tannins. The finish is long with persistent fruity notes. It pairs well with hearty roasted or grilled meat, stews and flavorful aged cheeses.
