Elena Walch Cabernet "Istrice" 2016
The Cabernet “Istrice” impresses with an intense ruby red color and stimulating fruit aromas - red forest berries and heart cherries - on the nose, as well as the seductive spiciness of white pepper and chocolate. On the palate, the wine surprises with a refreshing fullness and structure, with elegant, precise tannins and density, as well as a long, juicy finish.
