Turno Rdeče 2020
A cuvee of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with a translucent ruby red color and dense texture. The walls of the glass are colored with each swirl.
The intense aromas are a combination of ripe blackberries with maturation in wooden barrels. Ripe plum, black cherry, blueberry, and blackberry intertwine with faint hints of butter, vanilla, and cinnamon, which brings to mind a forest fruit pie. Notes of wood, pepper, forest undergrowth and cedar follow, and in the finish, we also find a slight note of chocolate.
The palate feels soft, with well-integrated alcohols. Freshness and minerality are pronounced, its tannins have a velvety effect and dry our mouths quickly. It is an elegant, full-bodied wine with an intense and long-lasting taste. Flavors of ripe fruit, sweet spices and wood are expressed in the mouth.
A harmonious wine that will only improve with age. It can be served with juicy veal steak, Wellington, as well as game dishes.
