“When I want to break free from everyday life, I choose this wine. Its fruitiness is reminiscent of black berries and the interaction of barrel spices in the aroma and taste offer a chance for some really pleasant relaxation – not to mention that I have one of the most velvety red wines from Sopron in my glass.”
