Tasting notes Emperatriz great red wine
In the mouth it has a powerful attack but with a smooth mid palate marked by a silky and pleasant tannin, which gives us a broad aftertaste that allows us to continue enjoying the wine for a long time. In the glass it evolves, expanding its aromatic variety. The pairing is very wide, ranging from mere tasting to any kind of meat, including game.
