From the winery:
“Deep ruby colour with violet hints. Vibrant and fruity nose, with a modern and spicy style, involving harmoniously notes of cherries and bilberry. In the mouth is fresh, fruity, well-structured, showing an excellent balance.
Ideal to be served with red meat, cheese and roast fish and a temperature between 16 and 18C.
The 2010 Sogevinus Doural Tinto begins with a simple but nice aroma of black cherry and a bit of spice. Tasting reveals a nicely balanced, light to medium-bodied wine with tasty tart fruit and a very smooth texture. It closes with a surprisingly good finish for a $6 bottle of wine with some pleasant spice notes and good length. A table wine you’ll be happy to have at your table!
