Product Description

Cantina di Negra Corvina, Tasting notes:

Ruby red with garnet hues. A spicy aroma with hints of vanilla, red and amarena cherries. Soft and round with gentle tannins
that blend seamlessly with the wine’s texture, with a long, spicy finish. Great every day wine by the glass.

Food :

Good with steak and chips and bbqs but also well with poached salmon.
