Ritual of blending for this cuvée Vespro in which the Cabernet Sauvignon freshness lively combines with the silkiness and the spicies of Syrah.

  • Tasting

    The color is a brillant and shiny red. The bouquet initially expresses itself with notes of roasted peppers and subsequently issues aromas of olive, thyme and rosemary. The beginning in the mouth is both fresh and perfumed, the power then comes up with the " peppery " accents and the silkiness of Syrah, to finish with a surprising and long lasting roundness. A powerful fresh wine, with an acidity that will make Vespro a wine that can be drunk from its early age and a reserve wine.
